The Power of Patience
Teachings with Amnyi Trulchung Rinpoche
Patience is the cure for anger. We never say, “I am so happy because I am feeling frustrated and irritated.” Irritation, frustration, annoyance, anger—none of these give happiness. Instead they disturb and confuse our minds. Rinpoche will examine the causes of negative emotions like anger and how the practice of patience can subdue and ultimately overcome them.
True patience gives rise to a peaceful mind. No one says, “I am so unhappy with my peaceful mind”!
With patience we can intelligently observe life’s ups and downs and, through the resultant insight, transform our previously confused, blind and harmful reactions into skilful and compassionate responses.
All are welcome.
