I find it fitting that Bodh Gaya is at the heart of this book, given that it commemorates Buddha's awakening from the illusion of hatred and other deceptions of the human mind, all the things that keep us from our highest potential to be loving beings who recognize our fundamental interconnectedness and interdependence. The short pieces here are written by Buddhist teachers who represent both the Mahayana and Theravada traditions, the two most major traditions of Buddhism today. And I have to say, they're real gems. It doesn't take long to read them, but they make for valuable objects of contemplation in our daily lives. You'll want to come back to them again and again whenever confronted with anger - whether it's your own, someone else's in your life, or in the world at large. You'll find new inspiration every time. What better way to promote peace in our world than this? You really don't have to be Buddhist to appreciate it. Anyone can draw insight from this book, and I think it's a great voice of sanity in our crazy, hectic, xenophobic, and sensory-overloaded world. Highly recommended.

Anger is a tricky thing to talk about constructively with others.
This book deserves a number of re reads as it contains many great insights.
