思いやりと穏やかな心 Compassion and Calm mind

"If someone behaves negatively towards you, it helps to remember that he or she is a human being like you and to distinguish between an action and the person who does it. If counter measures are needed to prevent someone doing harm, it's always better to do it with a calm rather than an agitated mind. If you act out of anger, the best part of your brain fails to function. Remember, compassion is not a sign of weakness." (From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's facebook on August 21, 2013)


Forgiveness, namely one of compassion, is useful for self-protection through keeping calm mind, without losing a temper. Compassion is a sign of strength!
(My commentary)
