Publisher's Summary

Simple and accessible wisdom from His Holiness the Dalai Lama on how to use compassionate anger for social transformation.

In the real world, exploitation exists. In the real world, there is a huge and unjust gap between rich and poor. The question, from a Buddhist perspective, is how should we deal with inequality and social injustice? His Holiness the Dalai Lama teaches that it is wrong for a spiritual person to remain indifferent; we must struggle to solve these problems. These problems are brought to our consciousness because they anger us, and this little audiobook teaches us how to deal with that anger. 

There are two types of anger. One type arises out of compassion and is useful and must be encouraged. The other type arises out of jealousy and envy and results in hatred, ill will, and harm. Here, you will learn the Buddhist path to compassionate anger - a motivating force that can transform the negative into the positive and change the world.

Interesting interview with the Dalai Lama

I think the audible version of this needs to be edited. There are repeated sections. ..?

Enjoyed listening to the ideas expressed through the interviews.
