    Dear Rinpoche
    I think this teaching has arrived just in time to help me with a situation at work next week that I anticipate will be very difficult. I do feel angry about a decision made by a colleague that I feel was misguided. If I am careful to be kind to the colleague rather than critical, even though I don’t agree with the decision, is that the best way to be patient?
    thank you Rinpoche, it is so good to have the Shedra teachings again.
    Kind regards

    Dear Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, If you have a person in your life that annoys you is that your karma? And if it is not resolved in this lifetime will it follow you to your next life? And what can be done .

    Thank you Mark
