One of my teachers, Geshe Doga, said that there is never any reason for us to get upset if we are criticized. We should look inside ourselves and check whether the criticism is true or not. If it isn’t true, the other person’s words are like empty, meaningless noise, and there is no need to get upset about them. But if we check and find that the criticism is true, we can grate-fully accept it as helpful advice for our spiritual development.
