Sugata – The ‘Dragon Tamer’

The Arhat Sugata is known  as “The Dragon Tamer.” The “Dragon” here is interpreted as vicious desire and  anger. Due to ingrained delusion, our mind is often not very tame or well  behaved.  With this un-tame “Monkey  Mind,” we cause our own suffering and the suffering of those around us. When we  tame and discipline this mind with right views and compassion, we are relieved  from suffering. “Deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the  wish to relieve it” is Compassion.
