 +'''​Anger'''​ — one of the root [[destructive emotions]].
 +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.
