The collection of vices known as the Seven Deadly Sins were thought to take one's thoughts away from God, and lead to further sin. We continue our series by looking at one of the most explosive of these sins: anger.

Guest:

Robert Thurman, holder of the Jey Tsong Khapa Chair in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University; ordained Tibetan Buddhist monk; author of several books, including Anger (Oxford University Press, 2004)
