Forgiving The Unforgivable
|Language of origin|
The true story of how survivors of the Mumbai terrorist attack answered hatred with compassion.
In November of 2008, a group of terrorists attacked Mumbai. One of their targets, the Oberoi Hotel, was where Master Charles Cannon of the Synchronicity Foundation and twenty-four of his international associates were staying. During the 45-hour siege, four in the group were wounded – and two were killed.
When rescued by SWAT teams and interviewed by international media, Synchronicity survivors did not express accusation – but compassion and forgiveness. This ignited a stunned curiosity throughout the world and a deluge of email messages and phone calls. “How did you get to be the way you are?” people wrote, and “How can I learn to be that way too?” Forgiving the Unforgivable is the answer to those questions.
This book outlines how true, deep and unqualified forgiveness can become an instinctive response in our catastrophe-prone world. As survivors retell the horrific moments of their ordeal in this epic narration, they also reveal the spiritual beliefs that enabled them to transcend and transform this terrifying experience. This could become a source of inspiration and strength for millions.
