Publishers Weekly, 1997-05-12 In September 1993, the Dalai Lama gave a series of teachings in Arizona that have become known as the Arizona Teachings. Based on the sixth chapter of Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life, these teachings focus on the role of patience and compassion in understanding and healing anger. In this collection of the Arizona Teachings, the Dalai Lama attempts to untangle a number of complex questions: How does anger arise? What are its effects on our spiritual life? How are we to work on eliminating anger as a threat to our spiritual development? The Dalai Lama works carefully to define the nature of anger, and he teaches with clear and forceful language that anger is resolved through the practices of patience and compassion. Fashioned as eight mini-lectures followed by a session of meditation and an open question-and-answer session with the audience, these teachings form an essential spiritual discourse.
