Contemplation: Patience

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:

Question:  How should followers of the teaching practice patience?

Answer:  They should be patient with the vexatious acts of others and should not harbor thoughts of vengeance, and they should also be patient in matters of gain or loss, honor or dishonor, praise or blame, suffering or joy, etc.
