Forgiving the Unforgivable

The True Story of How Survivors of the Mumbai Terrorist Attack Answered Hatred with Compassion

by Master Charles Cannon and Will Wilkerson

Book Image Not Available
Overview
In November, 2008, Pakistani Muslim terrorists attacked Mumbai. The 5 Star Oberoi Hotel was one of their targets. The Oberoi was also where M.C. Cannon, leader of the Synchronicity Foundation for Modern Spirituality in Virginia, and 24 of his associates were staying. Four in the group were wounded and two were killed. When rescued by SWAT teams and interviewed by the press, Synchronicity survivors expressed immediate compassion and understanding towards the terrorists. During interviews and press conferences following the attack, they repeated words of forgiveness, not accusation. This ignited an international tsunami of stunned curiosity and thousands of e-mail messages and phone calls flooded in. “I am inspired by your response.” “How did you get to be the way you are?” And, “How can I learn to do that?” Forgiving the Unforgivable is a response to those inquiries. Forgiveness is perhaps the most misunderstood (and most urgently needed) human virtue. Consider historic deadlocks like the Middle East conflict, North and South Korea, and the abusive scars of childhood that have rendered millions of individuals unable to forgive and get on with a fulfilling life. This book weaves together a page turning narrative of the Mumbai siege with a revolutionary explanation of what true forgiveness really is and how to live the Holistic Lifestyle in a state of awareness where true forgiveness becomes instinctive.

About the author
Master Charles Cannon is a leader in the field of modern spirituality, a visionary and pioneer in the evolution of human consciousness. He founded Synchronicity Foundation for Modern Spirituality in 1983 and developed the High-Tech Meditation and Holistic Lifestyle experience which have helped transform the lives of millions worldwide. His speaking engagements include: the United Nations; the World Health Organization; the National Institutes of Health; Columbia, Oxford, Tel Aviv and Bombay Universities; Westminster Abbey and the Vatican. His primary inspiration occurred during early childhood when the Blessed Mother began appearing to him. He became a close disciple of Paramahansa Muktananda, one of the most acknowledged spiritual masters of our modern era and was ordained as a monk in the Vedic tradition. His monastic name is Swami Vivekananda Saraswati. Master Charles and Synchronicity associates inspired world audiences in 2008 by expressing love, compassion and forgiveness rather than condemnation towards Islamic terrorists who murdered two and injured four of their group during the Mumbai terrorist attack. In the aftermath of their rescue, they created One Life Alliance, a charitable, educational organization dedicated to honoring the oneness and sacredness of life.
