Is there a shortcut?

Postby Individual » Sat Oct 16, 2010 8:17 pm

In this sutta:
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html

Ignorance-->Sensual desire-->Hatred & Despair-->Freedom

Is there a shortcut around Hatred & Despair?

If not, what is the quickest path through it? :)

Patience.



Shantideva has some good things to say about patience, developing it and subduing anger.

This route is not short, but it can show results in a few months.

You mean Kshanti.

It also means forgiveness.

Makes perfect sense. Thanks!
