The Wisdom of Forgiveness by HIs Holiness The Dalai Lama and Victor Chan reads like silky smooth literature. Victor Chan masters the turn of the phrase and manages to convey a poignant and articulate biographical account of his encounters with the Dalai Lama together which imparts the lesson of the wisdom of forgiveness together with heartening interaction with the Dalai Lama. I am not usually a fan of extended biographical/anecdotal accounts in the context of spiritual non-fiction where one might prefer a short anecdote or example followed by an extended discussion of the topic at hand but Victor Chan manages to relay the message gracefully as he skilfully draws us into his experiences as we read the book, we feel that we are there witnessing his interactions with the Dalai Lama. Will keep an eye out for more books written by him.
