Courage and Gentleness: Eknath Easwaran

Published on Sep 28, 2015

In this clip, taken from this month’s Video of the Month, Easwaran introduces his commentary on Chapter 23 of the Dhammapada, “Patiently I shall bear harsh words as the elephant bears arrows on the battlefield. People are often inconsiderate.”

For Easwaran, true strength shows itself in kindness, and true courage in gentleness. We can make those qualities our natural response to difficulties.
