Anger is a powerful emotion. We’ve all felt it…an uncompromising rage that builds up and either ends in a mini-outburst, or a full-blown crescendo. Usually, we feel silly afterwards, especially when the poor victim didn’t see it coming.
But why then do we allow it to happen over and over again? Is there a safe way to dispose of this body-based nuclear missile, which just seems to want to lock on to certain people, things and ideas, and go full steam ahead?
It is well-known in many contemplative traditions that anger can either be a source of misery, or it can be somehow transformed so as to fuel our progress in self-realisation.
To quote a verse from the Bhagavad Gita:
2.56 – “One who is not disturbed in mind even amidst the threefold miseries or elated when there is happiness, and who is free from attachment, fear and anger, is called a sage of steady mind.”
Come along this Thursday and experience not only some rational explanations of anger, but also an experiential method of mantra meditation, to diffuse it.
