Re: Working with anger

For this reason, you need to spend a lot more time when you are not angry on "intellectually" understanding the problems of allowing anger to take over, meditating and thinking about the negative effects of practicing anger.

Its the reason why Zen training is so important because it will allow you to access these deep networks and pathways and discover how they fit together, how to use them to connect to transform yourself from inside out, in a most profound way.

I don't know either her origins and also the practice of Tara, seems questionable to me, is this Buddhist practice? There are many stories going around.
We do puja in Tibetan Buddhist temples n centres. A rinpoche would lead the prayers. Buddhist enough?
