View live

In the face of tragedy, loss, crime, or social injustice, how can we break the cycle of anger, conflict, or violence? Forgiveness has tremendous power to engender tolerance, hope, empathy and peace. In a Facebook Live conversation, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and his guests will explore the healing power of forgiveness and its potential impact on the mind and psyche. Kia Scherr will share how forgiveness played a crucial role in her rebuilding her life after losing family members to a terrorist attack in India. Film director Svati Chakravarty Bhatkal shares Kia’s story, testimonies of other victims and perpetrators of violence, and their stories of forgiveness in her documentary Rubaru Roshni (Where the Light Comes In). Together they will investigate how some people manage to emerge from their pain by discovering light within it.
