It was under the Bodhi tree in India 2500 years ago that Buddha achieved the insight that three states of mind were the source of all our unhappiness: ignorance, obsessive desire and anger. All are equally difficult to control but, in one instant of anger, lives can be ruined, and our spiritual development can be destroyed. It is one of the most powerful emotions and one of the most difficult to change. Thich Nhat Hanh offers a fresh perspective on taking care of our anger as we would take care of a baby crying – picking it up, talking quietly to it, probing for what is making the baby cry. In this bestseller, Thich Nhat Hanh shares his deep understanding of the most difficult challenges, and gives us tools to transform this energy into compassion and wisdom.
