Episode 332 :: Lama Rod Owens :: Love and Rage: The Path of Liberation Through Anger

Lama Rod Owens

Lama Rod Owens returns to the podcast to talk about Love and Rage: The Path of Liberation Through Anger.

This topic reminds me of a meme I’ve been seeing for several years and agree with, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.” Anger is frequently condemned in Buddhism, confused with hatred — but it’s not the same thing. Anger the emotion is, like other emotions, informing us about something in the world, often something that needs attention, and change.

Lama Rod Owens is an author, activist, and authorized Lama in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism and is considered one of the leaders of his generation of Buddhist teachers. He holds a Master of Divinity degree in Buddhist Studies from Harvard Divinity School and is a coauthor of Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation. Lama Rod is the co-founder of Bhumisparsha, a Buddhist tantric practice and study community; has been published and featured in several publications including Buddhadharma, Lion’s Roar,Tricycle, and The Harvard Divinity Bulletin. He offers talks, retreats, and workshops in more than seven countries.

So, sit back, relax, and have a nice Darjeeling tea.
