Peace within ourselves

As the Buddha recommended, loving-kindness and compassion should first be sent to ourselves. A lot of our anger that is directed toward others stems from our initial anger toward ourselves. First we have to cultivate peace within ourselves, forgive ourselves and appreciate that despite all our faults and problems, essentially, we are good. We do have Buddha-nature, so there is definite hope that we can improve, and we must be friends with ourselves.
– Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo
