Chinese calligraphy: "Patience, Endurance". In Chinese origin, which is a kind of pictorial language, this word looks like there is a knife above the heart - patience has great virtue and great strength, it can take a lot. In the modern sense, "patience" also means slowing down, not hasty; be gentle to ourselves and others. "Being agressive, you can accomplish some things, but with gentleness, you can accomplish all things." As the great master Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche cited in his book "Ruling Your World."
