Anger: Buddhist Wisdom for Cooling the Flames

by Thich Nhat Hanh
£12.99   paperback  Ebury Press (Rider & Co) (2001)

Anger: Buddhist Wisdom for Cooling the Flames by Thich Nhat Hanh The Buddha taught that three states of mind are the source of all our unhappiness: ignorance, obsessive desire and anger. All are equally difficult but, in one instant of anger, lives can be ruined and our spiritual development destroyed. Anger is one of the most powerful emotions, and one of the hardest to change.
 
Buddhist monk, activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Thich Nhat Hanh, offers a fresh perspective on taking care of this tempestuous feeling. He suggests we look after it as we would a crying baby: by picking it up, talking quietly to it, probing for what is making the baby cry.
 
Laced with interesting stories and practical techniques, this unusually helpful and stimulating work offers a wise and loving look at trasforming such an explosive emotion into peace, and at bringing harmony and healing to all areas and relationships in our lives that have been affected by anger.
