In Buddhism, anger involves an active aggressive nature that leads to harm toward someone or something.
Buddhists believe that anger can be transformed into mirror-like wisdom, which cuts through confusion and helps us focus.
In Buddhism, envy brings us into competition with others. Instead of feeling motivated to act and achieve our own success, we fixate on what someone else has.
When Buddhists overcome their envy, they feel joy at the success of others. They develop an all-accomplishing wisdom that drives them to achieve things on their own merits for the collective greater good.
In Buddhism, pride involves
a degree of self-focus that limits us from treating everyone equally.
Buddhists believe an inflated sense of pride can be transformed into the wisdom of equanimity, which helps us suspend judgment and see all things as equal.
In Buddhism, attachment is the unending desire for more and more, and it is a root cause of all our suffering.
Buddhists believe that when we become aware of our attachments to people, things, and ideas, we can reframe how we view them. This discerning wisdom provides a heightened sense of clarity.
In Buddhism, emotions aren’t inherently good or bad. But we get into trouble when we can’t get in touch with our emotions or when they consume us.
When Buddhists are able to recognize their emotions, they can begin to shift their preconceptions, judgments, and attitudes, giving themselves a new way of navigating the world.
