Anger is ugly - It burns you

Love is the antidote for hatred, and goodwill for anger: the presence of one implies the absence of the other. Anger, on the other hand, is defined as an attitude, which wants to generate violence, an agitation against something either animate or inanimate.

Love as best antidote

Can you remember how you rejoiced warmth of your mom's love as a baby at her breast. You will never forget her deep sense of love, ebullient compassion which is supreme and lofty to say the least. This in fact is the perfect reciprocity; the mother and child, both participating in an activity
wherein neither felt exalted and nether debased, neither conferring a favor nor accepting an obligation; but both alike rejoicing in the blessedness of mutual love. It is a spiritual truth that evil may only be overcome by its opposite - Goodness.

Love and anger

Love is the antidote for hatred, and goodwill for anger: the presence of one implies the absence of the other. Anger, on the other hand, is defined as an attitude, which wants to generate violence, an agitation against something either animate or inanimate. If we look at a person, a situation or some object and do not like it and we want to express some violence and agitation towards it, to make it change in a violent way, this is a state of intolerance and a lack of patience combined with a wish to harm whatever it is that we cannot endure. Its opposite on the one hand is patience, which repels intolerance, and on the other it is love, and because love is the opposite of wishing to harm someone else. Here we get angry at situations in which a thing happens to us which we do not like and because they do not come up to our expectations, then we get very angry with them. Therefore, try to start your love after a second look because love at first sight is possible - but it is always good to take a second look. Physical non attractiveness does not prevent you from developing a charming personalty. If you cultivates the virtue the compassionate love, that love will show in so many winning ways. May the following teaching of the Lord Buddha your guiding force to all your actions:
How ugly is the angry man!
His sleep is without comfort;
Despite his wealth he is always poor.
Filled by anger as he is,
He wounds by acts of body and speech.

Sometimes anger is good when it makes us sit up and challenge injustice. Violent, hate filled anger is never justified. Good article, thanks.
