Dharmabyte: A Single Slash of Anger

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 17 Oct, 2019 - 14:00

Hatred or ill-will arises when something gets in the way of something we desire. From a mild irritation at being inconvenienced, to violent anger, competitiveness, jealousy, all are forms of ill-will.

Khemasuri explores the theme of anger in Santideva’s Bodhicaryavatara at Sangha Night, Sheffield Buddhist Centre. Excerpted from the talk entitled Gratitude to Everyone given on 15th April 2008. Part of a series on Great Buddhist Texts.

Creativity that inspired me - Dealing with hatred and realising its futility

By RCheesley on Thu, 31 May, 2012 - 22:06I created this video for one of the young people’s meetings of the Ipswich & Colchester group - we were asked to bring some creative source which inspires us.

I took two songs which at some point of my life meant something to me, or gave me some ‘insight’ into life, or the way things are, and put them to images. It’s a bit loud at the start, fair warning!
