Anger Solves Nothing – The weeks of Mar 19 through Apr 16

Anger has no function other than to cause us harm. It makes our mind rough and uncontrolled, robs us of our happiness, and disturbs others. Even the small anger of impatience and annoyance destroys our peace of mind and creates stress in our lives. This series will help us to learn how to recognize, reduce, and even eliminate anger from our mind.
