The real enemy is ignorance, the self-cherishing thought, so there’s no reason to get angry with external conditions
When the mind is under the control of disturbing thoughts there is no peace or happiness
Recognizing and renouncing harmful thoughts and actions brings peace and a meaningful life.
Anger, attachment and ignorance are the cause of all our suffering
The real hero is the person who fights anger and defeats the inner enemy, the delusions.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche explains how delusion and karma bind us to samsara in this excerpt from a teaching at the 11th Kopan Course.
Creating harmony and good communication with others through compassion and thought transformation rather than blaming and criticizing.
