Emotional hygiene 感情の健康法

"We need to be clear which emotions are harmful and which are helpful; then cultivate those that are conducive to peace of mind. Often, due to a lack of knowledge, we accept anger and hatred as natural parts of our minds. This is an example of ignorance being the source of our problems. To reduce our destructive emotions we strengthen the positive ones; such emotional hygiene can contribute to a healthier society." (From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's facebook on October 1, 2013)


Understanding the ultimate truth of interdependence is the key to generate reason such as compassion, gentleness and kindness. (My commentary)
