Hey, it's good to see some recent activity here; Josephine, Michael is correct in stating that anger should be converted into feelings of love & compassion, but it sure is not easy to do at times. This week for instance while His Holiness was visiting Japan, the Chinese media blasted Him, calling Him a "liar" and a disruptive force and so on...while many of us were sad, many were also quite angry :-( but I will share this story with U: One evening, an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy,
jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked, “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee replied, “The one you feed, my son.” :-)

Anger on it's own is useless - it is an energy and as such can be useful, as it can be transformed into compassion and loving kindness. If your anger is outrage at the treatment of Tibetans and it is converted into feelings of loving kindness and compasson towards them this is a positive transformation but it must continue to transform into loving kindness and compassion to all beings and not hatred towards the Chinese for example. Indeed the anger could be transformed into a kind of universal compassion towards all beings. Looking for energies to convert, there are less dangerous ones than anger however for one must apply continuous mindfulness to ensure the anger doesn't turn to hate or otherwise become damaging to self or others.

I was just thinking about anger and what place it has, if any in the dharma. It seems if an injustice is being done and the immediate feeling is anger, maybe even rage, isn't it a normal human reaction? Like feeling outrage at the status of people who just want to live their lives within their cultural traditions. Is that "wrong" or is it just something to mindfully attend to and dissapate? How does that help the Karmapa or His Holiness or any of the Tibetan people?

I loved this article and the pictures. Thank you Spreading Eagle. Speaking of video games, there is a game called Journey to Wild Divine. It is a biofeedback game where you use control of your breath, heart rate, etc. to make things happen in the game like opening a door, start a fire, etc. It monitors your vitals through these little things you put on your fingers and connect to your computer. The graphics are great and a lot of the music is by Nawang Khechog. In fact, I think he is one of the teachers in the game. They also have a sequel out called Wisdom Quest. Anyway, there is a heads up for all you video gamers out there.
