Afflictive emotions which destroy our inner peace and their corresponding antidotes:
anger – tolerance
pride/ego – humility
jealousy – compassion
hatred – love
attachment – impermanence
impatience – patience
dissatisfaction – satisfaction
ignorance – wisdom
Meditate on these, because if the mind is at peace the body will be more healthy
The mind controls body and speech
If the mind is positive the body and speech will be positive
We have wisdom. Only human beings can reduce their negative emotions
To develop great compassion, meditate on someone you love and focus and meditate on their positive body, speech, and mind. Then gradually expand this to other people.
Use the words: Love,
Help him or her
Think about the mistakes you have made.
When you feel anger, immediately think about that you are not angry with that person.
Meditate: today I will be tolerant, and I will love them as much as I can.
If I can’t love them I will not harm them.
Then think about the suffering in the world
Think about where most of the suffering comes from – the main cause is anger.
Then check your mind
There are three types of mind:
If someone makes you angry, think that you have a great opportunity to practice tolerance with them.
Have confidence in your practice of meditation which reduces distraction and deepens it.
Chant: “benefit from tolerance, harm from anger”.
Do this three times per day.
Direct the focus on the mind instead of the body.
Use mantras to calm the mind.
