Video: Action Without Anger

A short video presentation by H.E. Sakya Khöndung Avikrita Rinpoche titled "Action Without Anger"

The video addresses this main question:
"Rinpoche, I'm very worried about many issues facing my community, my country and our planet, and feel that is my responsibility as both a global citizen and practitioner of the Bodhisattva path to contribute toward overcoming these problems. However, sometimes I am also worried that this is at odds with my Dharma practice because I find myself getting not just upset and stressed out but really angry and even enraged at the perpetrators of the injustice and pain our world faces. What's your advice?"
