Topic: Opposing Retaliation
To overcome anger we have to learn new ways of responding to this frustration. It is unreasonable to expect that we can fulfil all our desires, we must learn to cultivate a more realistic and balanced approach to the problems of life. The methods of training our mind to 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 will be to train ourself in patience and defeat this enemy. Gen Mila will explain Buddha’s special methods for reducing the power and frequency of anger habits – and how to respond more effectively to the anger of others. This is a rare opportunity to learn ways of avoiding the harmful effects of our own and others’ anger.
Hope to see you there.
