Anger Solves Nothing

In this series we are going to look at the painful and destructive mind of anger. Anger has no good qualities and is one of the most common and destructive delusions, and afflicts our mind almost every day. To solve the problems of anger, we first need to recognize the anger within our mind, acknowledge how it harms both ourself and others and appreciate the benefits of being patient in the face of difficulties. In this series we will learn practical methods Buddha taught to use in our daily life to reduce our anger and work towards eventually prevent it arising at all. 

 This ongoing series will be based on the teachings from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s text: How To Solve Our Human Problem
