Six Liberating Actions:
Common to many Buddhist teachings is the role of the bodhisattva, one who has made the great and generous promise to rescue all beings from suffering and guide them to enlightenment. The work of the bodhisattva is summed up in the paramitas, the six liberating actions: generosity, patience, meaningful behavior, diligence, meditation, and wisdom.
Using Diamond Way Methods to Remove Disturbing Emotions and Appearing Obstacles on the Way:
"When looking at disturbing emotions, our view is very important: From the view of the eagle, everything is wisdom. From the view of the mole, everything is a disturbing emotion. Only few take the eagle’s view, while most experience anger, jealousy, etc. " Lama Ole Nydahl.
