This is a tenet of the Sikh faith, one I noticed while reading an article explaining why a professor who was targeted by a hate crime does not view himself as a victim, so it's not right to judge his reaction to the crime in that context.
The idea is that you do not focus on the negative in actions or people, but on the good, and celebrate it. Why is this not more common - why is it incompatable with other faiths?Answer Question
