what is forgiveness?

Forgiveness: What is?

“All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness… the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.”

Dalai Lama

We thought it would be interesting to explore what some others have expressed on the subject, since it reflects the theme of the film. We hope to interview a number of prominent figures of religion and other fields as well as find existing quotes and thoughts on the subject from both ones alive and others from the past. In doing so we hope it will offer some guidance to us as filmmakers as well as to others who may stumble upon this site, so their browsing may be hopefully worthwhile… so we thought the Dalai Lama would be perfect to kick off the search.
