This paper aims to critically analyze the moral dimensions of Javanese forgiveness in Serat Wedhatama by Mangkunegara IV and Serat Nitiprana by R. Ng. Yasadipura. Data analysis using Dilthey's hermeneutic method, and interpretation of results using Javanese Ethics theory from Frans Magnis Susena and Ethics theory from Driyarkara. The results of data analysis show that the nature of Javanese forgiveness in a moral perspective is the embodiment of virtuous human character. Forgiveness for virtuous humans comes from inner peace. Someone who has inner peace is not only able to overcome or at least control negative emotions and evil desires (not revenge), but also able to do good (compassion) to the wrongdoers. Forgiveness for virtuous people who have inner peace is a process or the result of a thoughtful process, the right decision, and persistent and resilient in application
