Dalai Lama’s Commentary on Forgiveness

It would be much more constructive
If people tried to understand their supposed enemies.
Learning to forgive
Is much more useful
Than merely picking up
A stone and
Throwing it at the object
Of one’s anger,
the more so when
The provocation is extreme
For it is under the greatest
adversity that there exists
The greatest potential
For doing good,
Both for
Oneself and others.


H.H. The 14th Dalai Lama
