Topic: Stormy inner Weather
To overcome anger we have to learn new ways of responding to frustration. Since it is unreasonable to expect that we can fulfil all our desires, we must cultivate a more realistic and balanced approach to the problems of life. The methods of training our mind in this more realistic approach are included within the practice of patience. The more clearly we understand that the sole function of anger is to make us miserable, the more motivated we shall be to train ourself in patience and defeat this enemy – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Rinpoche
Gen Mila will explain Buddha’s special methods for reducing the power and frequency of our anger habits – and responding more effectively to the anger of others. This is a rare opportunity to learn the middle way of avoiding the harmful effects of our own and others’ anger.
