tenzin-palmo-2We live in a huge material pollution; air, earth, polluted water. If we could see the energy of anger, violence, paranoia, greed, envy, competitiveness around the earth, it would be a great layer of dirty energy.

It is very important that we do not act on this energy, even if we are outraged. Outrage based on anger instead of compassion just adds more of it to the world, besides fear. As the Buddha says: “Anger is not solved with more anger; anger is solved without anger.”

We have to put out love and compassion because the world is really suffering. And that does not mean that we accept and tolerate. But if we join this energy of paranoia and fear, we will be on that side.

—Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo
