Ven. Chodron on hindrances - anger
- "I think part of working on our anger is just taking ownership of our
anger. That's already a big thing because we don't like to say, 'My
anger is mine.' We like to say that others make us angry, 'My anger is
not mine; you made me angry. It's your fault that I'm angry. It's not
my responsibility.' We see this attitude clearly when somebody
criticizes us, as if anger is a virus; it comes out of their mouth,
hits us, and we get the flu of anger."
~ Ven. Thubten Chodron, excerpted from dharma talk "Bear the
Unbearable: the Bodhisattva Practice of Patience," by Ven. Thubten
Chodron, The Buddhist Library, Singapore, 25 Apr 2006.
