On Helplessness, Contempt, and Forgiveness 

On Helplessness, Contempt, and Forgiveness 

Abstract:

Kiyo Morimoto, the second Director of the Bureau of Study Counsel, offered these reflections as Morning Prayers at the Memorial Church at Harvard University between 1982 and 1984. They speak to students' efforts, indeed all our efforts, to accept our own and others' limits, recognize our own and others' authority, and maintain a sense of hope and caring even in the face of shame, suffering, or tragedy. “Reflecting on his experience, Morimoto offers us three delightful and thought provoking meditations on how we might live harmoniously within ourselves and with others.” — M. Suzanne Renna, Associate Director (Retired), Bureau of Study Counsel, Harvard University.
