Thich Nhat Hanh on Anger

leave a comment »

Interviewed by Ram Dass before he was stroked:

When you breathe mindfully, you are not ignoring anger. In fact, you are mindful also of your anger. You are practically taking care of your anger. Breathing in, I know I am angry. Breathing out, I am taking good care of my anger. … The practice is called mindfulness of anger. Mindfulness of breathing – breathing in order to be aware of your anger and to embrace your anger with the energy of mindfulness. If we continue like that for sometime, there will be a transformation in the heart of the anger.
