Swami Chinmayananda On Anger



Swami Chinmayananda On Anger
Anger comes to us when our desires or expectations are disturbed, defeated. Anger is nothing but desire of attachments, expectations or hope is obstructed. Again when you meet such occasion, at least after the wave of anger has subsided, reconsider the entire situation and try to mentally live and relive a hundred times the same situation—all the time see that you keep yourself smiling.

After all, another has an equal right to be bad, mischievous, foul-mouthed, dirty, undisciplined as you have right to be good, cheerful, clean and even peaceful. "Give the devil its due", accept this as a policy—anger will not rise.

Also flood the mind with unreserved love for all—always: you will have no occasion to be angry.
