When we won’t think ill of others, our love would be universal. When we pardon the guilty and forget about it, we will have no enemies. A truly virtuous person does not pollute his heart with the thought of taking revenge. He protects himself against the affects of the sword of duality and enmity with the shield of forgiveness. It is impossible to describe his state of happiness, calmness and peace of mind which results from forgiveness. A forgiving person imbibes the unique qualities of contentment, humility, courage and forbearance. He always looks happy and cheerful. He never gives up forgiveness and compassion even in the amidst of adversity.
