Forgiveness – Breaking the bondage of Karma

World Yoga Festival

To make a mistake is Human. Yet, mistakes torment us, hurt us or drives everyone crazy. We feel guilt, shame, jealous, anger, etc., and we just don’t like it. To break away from all this is to find a way to forgive those who have hurt us. We need to not only forgive others but to also forgive ourselves. For having the courage to forgive, is a step towards breaking the chains of our past karmas that may have created the situation in the first place. Swamiji helps us understand the larger picture of hurt and pain, and provides us with guidance on what we can do to forgive ourselves and others.
