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
