Digging through Trash

If someone at work or in our family is always angry, we need to be patient. We all have faults. We cannot just throw angry people out of our life. When someone is irritable, we need to let her be, tol-erate her shortcomings, and make a point of acknowledging her good qualities. Try-ing to analyze why she is unkind to us is like digging through the trash and scattering it all over the floor.

Excerpt From: “Change of Heart: The Bodhisattva Peace Training of Chagdud Tulku” by Lama Shenpen Drolma.
