Buddhism & the Good & Bad of Wrath

Nichiren wrote that wrath can be either good or bad,

Self-centered anger generates evil, but wrath of social injustice becomes the driving force for reform,

Strong language that censures and combats a great evil often awakens adverse reactions from society,

But this must not intimidate those who believe they are right,

A lion is a lion because he roars.
