Forgiveness is tied directly with anger. Just like anger control, forgiveness is not a new invention either. It is a common knowledge that forgiveness is good for us. I do not know of any religion which does not advocate forgiveness. Unfortunately most of us just go thru the motion of talking about forgiveness and give only a lip service to the beautiful concept. We say one thing..do something else. There is no harmony between our thought, speech, and action. Consequently..the knowledge of forgiveness and going thru the religious rituals exemplifying forgiveness is not doing anything for us

Very much yes ....only difference is how good and bad people interpret it ..............for example , Newton's third law tells " every action has an equal and opposite reaction "
Few fools , fanatics , lunatics and sadists from every religion interpret is as " tit for tat "
But majority of people who are wise , interpret it as " an eye for an eye will make the world blind "

Yes, every religion advocates forgiveness. Forgiveness is a virtue of a courageous person. Forgiveness imparts compassion. Forgiveness wins the hearts and rules the human nature.
It is hence that every religion talks about forgiveness, but alas it is the single platform of non-tolerance and dividing people !
