Why is it that it is no good for you to feel angry ? it is because when someone always scold you at work or at home and is for "nothing".......your negative karma will ripen and therefore it is very good merits for you. You are one step nearer to becoming a Buddha.
However, inside your mind, you cannot scold that person back or else you get negative points or get bad karma. This is why you should not get angry back at the person.
"Whatever thoughts you have in your mind, can manifest"
Meaning that they can come true for you especially when you are walking on the rightful path.
So if in your mind, you are scolding him/her back and giving all sorts of reasons saying why you didn't do it and is not you. All these are bad thoughts and got karma one.
Lhamo discovered that the best way to NOT have these bad thoughts is to turn into chanting. Silently chant "Ah Mi Tio Fo" and this helps your mind to be focussed on this chanting and soon that person will stop scolding you, The scolding stops because you are silently chanting "Ah Mi Tio Fo" in your mind. hehe
Try it....it works.
So when your mind is chanting ...........this is not considered as scattered thoughts and therefore you are still considered to be at "Samadhi" stage.
Rinpoche creates reminders of practice in countless ways. Now everywhere kangaroos, snakes etc are helping. Read the sign. use every opportunity to remember practice especially bodhicitta, always think of benefiting others. Do not waste this life thinking only of oneself! pic.twitter.com/hEAtRVdMZr— Lama Zopa Rinpoche (@LamaZopa) April 21, 2018
