The perfection of patience
Sundays from September 20
This in-depth course taught by Gen Delek on how to overcome our anger through practicing patience will take us through Chapter 6 of Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, the famous poem by the great Buddhist Master Shantideva. Though composed over a thousand years ago, this is one of the clearest and most powerful explanations of the subject ever written, and just as relevant today as it was then.
There is no evil greater than anger,
And no virtue greater than patience.
Therefore, I should strive in various ways
To become familiar with the practice of patience.
