Buddhist teachings offer profound insights into the effects and alleviation of anger. The speaker says that is it very common for the mind to create “adversaries” or “enemies” by a superficial process of reactionary thought. Something a person does may irritate us and we therefore label that person unfavorably based on a partial understanding of why that person acted the way he or she did. We cannot judge actions by outward appearance alone. Often we do not understand the motivation behind another person’s action. The speaker offers a number of simple but effective techniques that lead to living a harmonious lifestyle free of anger and bitterness. 1989. 78 minutes.
