This is what HE Garchen Rinpoche taught us when I first met him. We are incapable of knowing the truth of our existence, therefore we suffer. Mindfulness and compassion lead us on the path out of suffering. The only antidote to someone who is angry, who seeks to obstruct you, is to develop compassion for their suffering and to generate loving kindness. When you free your own mind of afflictive emotions you benefit others.

Bodhicitta, the precious and loving mind,

where it is unborn may it arise,

where it is born may it not decline

but ever increase higher and higher.
