The title may have caught your attention. In Tibetan Buddhism, all the poisons of the mind, including anger and rage, become wisdom. Anger and rage are different. Anger is worthwhile to express. It has clarity. It can help clear things up. Rage hides hurt. If the hurt, the original vulnerable feeling can be met and taken care of, rage dissolves. Buddhism teaches that all the emotions are just energy--and they are neither bad nor good. At the same time, some Buddhist practices are designed to get rid of anger. Is it necessary to get rid of anger? I say no. If it's possible to just sit with the anger or rage, to just be present with it, it subsides on it's own without any manipulation. Judgment doesn't help anger. It doesn't help to say, "don't be angry" or you shouldn't be angry. What is your experience? All comments welcome.
