Anger is not fun. It ruins a good day, a good relationship, a good life! The reason we get angry is that we allow our mind to remain on an object that is likely to stimulate anger. If we catch our mind as soon as it starts to focus on such an object it is quite easy to prevent anger from arising and to channel our thoughts in a more constructive direction.
We each have a tremendous potential for peace, joy and positivity in our mind, but anger, irritation and frustration can rob us of our happiness and mental well-being. During this course we will explore practical solutions to the problem of anger, deconstructing its causes and learning how to transform this painful habit of mind through training in meditation and Buddhist psychology.
Teachings will be based on the books: How to Solve Your Human Life, How to Understand the Mind and The Bodhisattva's Way of Life written by the fully accomplished meditation master Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
