As Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism says,
‘Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world’.

To deal with someone else’s anger or aggression, the best method is simply to meditate on compassion and loving-kindness, because, it seems that the aggression that one experiences from others has to do with, not having dealt with one’s own consciousness’ stream.
#Karmapa: keep a clear mind
With a mind disturbed by emotion, we are at risk of thoughts, words and actions that may increase any suffering and damage already caused. With a clear mind, we are in a better position to serve and benefit those who are suffering, as well as others who are affected. This is one of the many reasons why prayer and meditation is so important.
