5197Geshe Kelsang Gyatso on equanimity
- Nov 22, 2013Developing equanimity
"Our attitudes towards others are normally unbalanced. When we see a
friend, or someone we find particularly attractive, we are pleased;
when we see an enemy, or an unattractive person, a feeling of dislike
automatically arises; and when we see a stranger, or someone we find
neither attractive nor unattractive, our mind remains indifferent to
them. Such unbalanced attitudes are the main obstacle to developing
unbiased love, compassion, and bodhichitta . . . Our first task,
therefore, is to free our mind from these unbalanced attitudes and
develop a genuine equanimity towards all living beings."
