Description About the author
 
This DVD is the latest release in a series of ongoing reissues that bring the work of the Dalai Lama to a wider audience. These films will form part of a unique and groundbreaking series of films that will be welcomed the world over not only by those interested in Buddhism but fellow travellers on the road to enlightenment.

How do we deal with negative emotions? This is an important topic one that brings up the question of what's positive and what's negative. Is there anything that's absolutely negative or absolutely positive? I don't really know. Everything is interdependent and everything has different aspects. One observer looks at something from this angle and sees one picture, but even the same observer, when they go to the other side, sees things from a different angle.

Why, then, does each person have a different view of the world? Well, it's because each of us looks at the world from a different angle. Even the same object looks different even to the same person. Therefore, what is the distinction and definition of good and bad? I don't know. Even an ant doesn't analyze that. But, somehow, an ant knows that something that helps its life is good and so considers it good; and something that's a danger to life it feels that is bad and so it runs around it.

So, perhaps we can say that [the issue of good or bad] is based on survival. We want comfort and happiness. And so something that's helpful for survival, we consider that good: that's positive. Something that attacks us and which we feel is a danger to our survival we feel that that's bad: that's negative.
