Today's Daily Dharma: Abide in Patience

Abide in Patience
Praise and so on distract me and remove my disillusionment with the cycle of existence. They stir up jealousy toward gifted people, and anger at their success. . . . It is wrong to feel anger toward someone, thinking that person impedes my merit. As there is no austerity equal to patience, shall I not abide in that?
- Shantideva, "The Way of the Bodhisattva"
