The lecture is concerned with anger which arises in everyday life in many shades: as irritation, aggression up to heavy fits of rage and vindictiveness. Thubten Chodron will explicate how we can identify anger and transform it with the help of Buddhist methods.
The nun is known for her very lively lectures very close to everyday life.
