A Buddhist Prayer of Forgiveness

If I have harmed any one in any way,
either knowingly or unknowingly
through my own confusions,
I ask their forgiveness.
If any one has harmed me in any way,
either knowingly or unknowingly
through their own confusions,
I forgive them.
And if there is a situation
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.

    Although a nice sentiment and meditation, how is this Buddhist?
    Perhaps 'confusions'?? I assume 'ignorance'.

    A good meditation to sit with. Well done.

    I've always found it harder to forgive myself than others.

    Thanks you for sharing this. I have been doing a lot of investigating of Buddhism and find it very much in line with the way I am and want to live my life.

    Forgiveness is for us...what better place to start or end with forgive of our own trespasses. emoticon
