    A Buddhist prayer of forgiveness

    I found this today, I did not write it, and I do not know who did.

    If I have harmed anyone in anyway, either knowingly or unknowingly
    Through my own confusions, I ask for their forgiveness.

    If anyone has harmed me in anyway, either knowingly or unknowingly
    Through their own confusions, I forgive them.

    And if there is a situations I am not yet ready to forgive, I forgive myself for that.
    For all the ways that I harm myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself
    Through my own confusions, I forgive myself




    Gassho,

            Very nice
            If I'm already enlightened why the hell is this so hard?

                      I should put this on my wall to remember it always. So that every time I walk past it I will remember to forgive.

                        I'm starting to say this every evening after I sit.
