Led by meditation teacher Thanissaro Bhikkhu, this Dharma Talk discusses how to use the Buddha’s teaching on the three fabrications (sankhara)—bodily, verbal, and mental—to break down anger and replace it with a perspective that’s more conducive to dealing skillfully with the situation that provoked the anger to begin with.
