"When we fully develop anger, we can not see the reality." ~ His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
The energy of an angry moment can be quite daunting. Falling into a 'blind rage' is much more than a simple metaphor. It describes the physical and spiritual condition that develops when we are angry - and our inability to see clearly, the reality before us.
And when we are unable to see, to face our situation with a calmness of heart, we are unable to move past this emotion.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama talks about dealing with anger in this clip from his visit to Doon School in Dehradun, India, on October 28, 2011.
