Trinity of Forgiveness
In Buddhism as in Hinduism and other reincarnation and karma based pagan religions, the concept of unresolved issues in past lives is the very cause that people are bound in loving or abusive relationships in their present lives.
In our Post-Modern times, social decadence stemming from liberalism, progressivism, and feminism has most definitely destroyed traditional family relationships and values. It has destroyed the very backbone and foundations of the family, every fabric of community and society, and sadly, people’s faith in God. Our society is infested with atheists, agnostics, ignosticists, apatheists, and naturalists, who are indignant in their beliefs but miserably unable to bring about peace and harmony to anyone including themselves.
Consider the issue of filial relationships. According to teachings of Buddhism and Hinduism, some children form relationships with their parents in order to repay debts owed to them in the past; others have come to collect. Those who have come to repay will respect, love and honour their parents; those who have come to collect will hurt them.
In the worst case scenario, a parent or parents would invest in their children with love, care, education, and everything material only to be forced to live with the consequence of having their well-groomed children met with sudden deaths such as those occurring in car or plane crashes. That is how it usually plays out in the case of the most horrendous of debt collectors.
Buddhism and Hinduism explain these relationships as past karma squaring out in the present, although Christian beliefs do not subscribe to such explanations and therefore such may be offensive to someone with little or no understanding of Eastern religions.
