To eliminate anger, you should practice the six perfections of the Bodhisattvacharyavata, especially patience. How do we do that in our Western lives? This talk will give you examples and practical ideas to help yourself and others by ending the cycle of anger, through understanding how anger works and how the dharma teaches us how to respond correctly to various daily challenges to our sense of self.
