I am grateful—very grateful—for The Society of Friends who met here tonight to discuss Chapter 17 of the Dhammapada, Anger. I had been looking forward to this meeting for several days.
We sat around the table listening intently to each other respond to what the Buddha taught about anger.
I felt enriched, as if each person brought a bowl of jewels to share. Each person's insights into and experiences with anger enlivened, enriched, and deepened the Dharma for me.
Sangham saranam gachami!
(I take refuge in my spiritual friends!)
