Today wanted to share this paragraph on something I really like about Buddhism :
Sometimes called forbearance, khanti essentially means enduring the unendurable and tolerating the intolerable. This is a good practice for laypeople who, in their demanding lives, frequently find themselves with little time yet under pressure to get things done- a toxic brew. How often do we hear mothers screaming at their children, or harsh, cut responses to simple request. This paramita is said to be means to overcome anger (one of the hindrances to meditation), and to clam the passions of those with fiery temperaments.
