In the previous series, we learned to subdue anger by increasing our wisdom. In this series, we will learn how to subdue anger by increasing our compassion.
As Geshe Kelsang Gyatso states in his book How to Solve Our Human Problems, “When someone harms us, we should not only think, ‘He’s hurting me just because he’s deluded,’ but also, ‘He’s hurting himself too.’” This way of thinking helps us to grow our compassionate heart that wishes others to be free from problems. With compassion, our anger naturally subsides and we look for a way to help others rather than looking for a way to retaliate.
