Making amends for past wrongs...
Can I ask what is the Buddhist take on making amends to people (or organisations) for past wrongs we may have done? For example, making amends to people we've harmed in the past, or to institutions we may have stolen from?
Did the Buddha give any teachings covering this subject?
The dharma talks I've heard go along the lines of accepting you've done wrong, forgiving yourself, and learning from your mistakes; but I've not heard anything about making amends.
Is there a Buddhist view point on this?
