Letting Go of Anger and Resentment: How to Solve our Human Problems
“There is no evil greater than anger, and no virtue greater than patience. Therefore, I should strive in various ways to become familiar with the practice of patience.” – Shantideva
Do you ever find yourself in situations in which it seems impossible to keep a happy mind? Even after getting out of a bad situation, do you still find yourself with a lingering feeling of frustration or resentment? In these classes we will explore tried and tested methods for letting go of anger and resentment – without repressing it or taking it out on others. The practice of patient acceptance, when combined with wisdom and compassion, is the most effective way to work with our unhappy feelings, learn from them, and then heal our mind and our heart so that we can finally get some peace.
