Whether directed at others or experienced in response to difficult
situations, anger is an enemy that can be tamed by its antidote,
patience. Bardor Tulku Rinpoche teaches Shantideva’s chapter on
patience in The Bodhicharyavatara. Rinpoche bases his
commentary on Jamyang Lamai Shalung Dutsi Tikpa (Drops of Amrita from
the Mouth of Guru Manjushri) by Khenpo Kunzang Palden. He shows
how to work with anger in the context of everyday experience. With
relentless logic, this teaching demonstrates that situations of
conflict, endured and resolved through patience, present occasions for
spiritual growth. Translated by Lama Yeshe Gyamtso. Four talks on one MP3 CD. Edited in a mainly English format with the Tibetan monologues curtailed.
- MP3CD Recordings
- MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have “MP3” or “MP3-WMA” clearly marked on the front of it. The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
