Confession of Faults

I was listening to a Dhamma on Air episode by Ven. Samahita Bhikkhu the other day and, if I remember correctly, he was discussing Sacca Parami or the Perfection of Truth. At one point I recall him saying how we not only need to admit to our akusala mental and verbal kamma but we need to confess it to a noble friend.

Now, being that I haven’t been able to do much besides parent and work since the birth of our daughter, it’s been hard to meet with any kalyāṇamitta. So, despite my misgivings that doing so her might in some way glamorize or romanticize my failings, I really can’t think of a better place to confess my faults.

I have spoken harshly and acted out of anger when my children did not obey me. May I practice patient forbearance and not succumb to the temptation of anger in the future.
