Summary

"The Wisdom of Forgiveness is a heart-to-heart conversation between the Dalai Lama and his dear friend. It allows us to discover what profound meditative insight and suffering feel like to an enlightened being; what he does daily to develop himself spiritually; how he feels about violence, and the circumstances under which he could see committing an act of violence; how he has learned to love his enemies; and why it is that doctors report that the heart of this holy man in his late sixties resembles that of a twenty-year old."--BOOK JACKET.
