Healing Anger: the Power of Patience From a Buddhist Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All the world's major religions emphasize the importance of the practice of love, compassion, and tolerance. This is particularly true in the Buddhist traditions, which unanimously state that compassion and love are the foundation of all paths of practice. To cultivate the potential for compassion and love inherent within us, it is crucial to counteract their opposing forces of anger and hatred.

In this book, the Dalai Lama shows how through the practice of patience and tolerance we can overcome the obstacles of anger and hatred. He bases his discussion on A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life, the classic work on the activities of Bodhisattvas—those who aspire to attain full enlightenment in order to benefit all beings.

Synopsis:

Relevant not only to Buddhists but to everyone seeking self-improvement, this outstanding teaching by the world's foremost Buddhist, based on the "Patience" chapter of Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life, offers those seeking to improve themselves numerous techniques for overcoming these obstacles, and strength in the face of adversity.

Synopsis:

The Dalai Lama teaches with clear and forceful language. These teachings form an essential spiritual discourse.--Publishers Weekly

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [151]-[152]).
