Learning how to forgive has been one of the most transformational journeys of my life. Many of us don’t fully realize its importance and the importance it is given within our bhakti tradition. As devotees we are meant to be forgiving. If we hold on to resentment we not only harm ourselves spiritually, but physically and emotionally as well.
I am honored to share with you what I have learned about forgiving and the forgiveness process through my own own experiences in forgiving, and through my study and teaching of the topic.
The Foundational Course online was developed in 2016 as a summary of the basic principles of the The Forgiveness Intensive Course (also available on Teachable). The course consists of ten 20 to 30 minute lectures (on video) along with Power Point graphics. Each video ends with an exercise.
The Foundational Course gives you an understanding of the psychology of forgiveness and how to let go of your resentment. It is designed for those with a general interest in the topic, those who do not have deep resentment issues to let go of, or for those who have already forgiven but feel they need to do more work on their issue. It is a five-hour course (as opposed to the 20 plus hours needed to go through the Intensive Course).
If after taking this course you feel you need further help, then we recommend the Intensive Course. A little info on the Intensive Course is below.
Mahatma Prabhu was born in Los Angeles, California in 1950. In 1969, at the age of 19, he first met Srila Prabhupada through The Bhagavad Gita As It Is, and then later that year met Srila Prabhupada personally in Los Angeles. In January of 1970 he moved into the temple in Berkeley, California and shortly after received first and second initiation.
He went on to do a variety of services including book distribution, sankirtan leader, temple president, college preaching, congregational development, and various educational projects. This has culminated in the work he does today developing workshops, social media, online courses and books both for devotees as well as the general public through his company Sattva [www.thesattvaway.com]. He practically shows the many ways that Krishna consciousness offers solutions to today’s challenges and writes and teaches in a way that resonates with devotees and people in general by helping them see life as a spiritual practice
Mahatma Prabhu is well known in ISKCON for his recorded and live music, most notably his recording of Brahma Samhita, but also for his workshops on such essential topics as Japa, Forgiveness, Humility, Vows and Marriage.
