To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
To exercise forgiveness is a great act. Forgiveness is equal to ablutions at all places of pilgrimage. Forgiveness ensures your salvation. There is no virtue equal to forgiveness.
I forgive all living beings of the universe, and may all living beings forgive me for my faults. I do not have any animosity towards anybody, and I have friendship for all living beings.
Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
