Compassion and gratitude are the best ways to conquer hatred. We should be grateful for our enemies and other obstacles that help us grow.
Only by having gratitude will we have an opportunity to reflect on our own situation and realise how precious happiness is. Besides, we’re given a chance to correct our behaviour by being aware of our defects. We should also be grateful to them for letting us develop wisdom, creating an inner breakthrough in the face of adversity and removing our negative karma.
