Approaching Buddhism: Releasing Anger and Accepting Defeat
John Bruna, the spiritual director of the Way of Compassion Dharma Center, offers a teaching and guidance on the fifth verse of the eight verses of mind training as taught in Tibetan Buddhism.
Whenever others out of jealousy,
mistreat me with abuse, slander, and so on,
I will practice accepting defeat,
and offering the victory to them.
John gives clarity on how to practice this verse in daily life that encourages our tolerance and helps us avoid arguments.
