Anger

Wisdom for Cooling the Flames

In one instant of anger (one of the most powerful emotions) lives can be ruined, and health and spiritual development can be destroyed. In this book Thay looks at how to understand and handle anger.

With exquisite simplicity, Thich Nhat Hanh gives practices and advice for transforming relationships, focusing energy, and rejuvenating those parts of ourselves that have been laid waste by anger. Thich Nhat Hanh’s extraordinary wisdom can give each reader the power to “change everything.”

It was under the bodhi tree in India twenty-five centuries ago that Buddha achieved the insight that three states of mind were the source of all our unhappiness: wrong view, obsessive desire, and anger.
