Dalai Lama - Arising from flames
In September, 1993, His Holiness the Dalai Lama spoke to an audience of 5000 in Tucson, Arizona on the overcoming of anger through patience. This is an audio recording of this important teaching, entirely in the Dalai Lama's own words. The Dalai Lama speaks of positive and negative desire and how through training we can reduce anger and hatred and increase love and forgiveness. Negative emotions are harmful not only for you but for the society and for the future of the whole world. He speaks of the possibility for change and transformation and of how in the changing of society, first must come the change of the individual. The Dalai Lama talks of the many methods for sustaining a calm mind and tells how in his own difficult circumstances he does so.
