Buddhist Forgiving

One of the commentators on Weisenthal's book on forgiveness was Tensen Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.  Much of his single page of comments consisted of this incident:  "A few years back, a Tibetan monk who had served about eighteen years in a Chinese prison in Tibet came to see me after his escape to India.  I knew him from my days in Tibet and remembered last seeing him in 1959.  During the course of that meeting I asked him what he felt was the greatest threat or danger while he was in prison..... he said that what he most feared was losing his compassion for the Chinese."
