 +======= Anger =======

 +**Anger** — one of the root [[affliction]] or [[destructive emotions]].
 +
 +===== Translation =====
 +The word '​anger'​ translates several Tibetan including //​khongtro//​ ([[Wyl.]] //khong khro//) and //​shyédang//​ (Wyl. //zhe sdang//). [[His Holiness]] the [[Dalai Lama]] has advised that the latter term should be translated as [[hatred]], because the word anger can sometimes, in rare circumstances,​ be seen as positive, whereas hatred like //​shyédang//​ can never be positive. However, when it appears in the context of [[tantra]], he says, it should be translated as anger (as in [[Yamantaka]] Tantra).
