40 years after the overthrow of the democratically elected Salvador Allende government by Pinochet and his supporters who killed and tortured innocent people, particularly poor people. . . Today we still believe in "don't forgive and don't forget". . . We, twenty-first century monks and bodhisattvas who daily live in society, should we regard the "don't forgive and don't forget" motto as a precept to follow?
Answer from Master Kosen
Of course, there are deeds and behaviors that we should not forgive nor forget, this does not contradict the karma doctrine, which states that deeds give rise to retribution.
Even if the culprit feels remorse and changes, and if we could forgive him after a long while, the deed itself must not be forgiven nor forgotten.
