and no spiritual practice equal to forbearance.

Therefore, we ought to develop forbearance,

by various means, with great effort.

[…]

Our minds find no peace,

neither enjoy pleasure or delight,

nor go to sleep, nor feel secure

while the dart of hatred is stuck in the heart.

—Shantideva, Bodhicharyavatara
