Dalai Lama Quote of the Week
- Dalai Lama Quote of the Week
Insofar as the destructive effects of anger and hateful thoughts are
concerned, one cannot get protection from wealth; even if one is a
millionaire, one is subject to these destructive effects of anger and
hatred. Nor can education guarantee that one will be protected from these
effects. Similarly, the law cannot guarantee protection. Even nuclear
weapons, no matter how sophisticated the defense system may be, cannot give
one protection or defend one from these effects.
The only factor that can give refuge or protection from the destructive
effects of anger and hatred is the practice of tolerance and patience.
-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama from Healing Anger: The Power of Patience
from a Buddhist Perspective, published by Snow Lion Publications.
