Dear All,

Please do read (In Spiritual Service).



A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other.... He turned to his disciples smiled 'n asked.

'Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?'

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our calm, we shout.'

'But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.' asked the saint

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.

Finally the saint explained, .

'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small...'

The saint continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper 'n they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other 'n that's all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.'

He looked at his disciples and said.

'So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.'

Hi Pramod, It is an excellent post. Message is LOVE / AFFECTION brings people and hearts closer. Out bursts of anger distances people and their hearts. thanks for the post, V.Raghunathan

It is a very nice parable signifying the futility of anger which in due course metamorphoses slowly into hatred and eventually the distance between the hearts become unbridgeable! That's why the great Tamil poet of Sangam era THIRUVALLUVAR says " Very bad is anger where you can't have it and nothing is worse than anger even where you can have it!"If we analyze deeply, we will find that the source of anger is always our inability.A Zen parable in this regard. A temperamental Samurai known for his mood-swings and talkativeness called on a Zen Master and started asking many irrelevant questions about hell and heaven but refuted every answer given by the Master.At one point of time the Master stopped answering, closed his eyes and started meditating. The Samurai, as usual, lost his temper, unsheathed his sword and shouted at the Master, "if you don't answer, I will kill you, tell me what is hell?" The Master calmly looked at him and said "This is hell". The Samurai understood the hint, threw away the sword, fell at the feet of the Master and asked for his forgiveness. The Master smilingly said, "This is heaven!"

Hello Pramod,
Thanks for this statement It is eye opening .spiritual explanation of why do we anger on others, how close may be, even between husband and wife and parents and children. I convey my thanks for this piece of knowledge. I used to think that anger is manifestation of our weakness, inability to explain the viewpoint and distrust of other person view. Anyhow, thanks again.

Hi Pramod,
Thanks for sharing this. Nowadays people are so hurry in reaching their destination. Many people don't have patience to listen to others, some argue whatever they say that is right even if it is wrong. For such kind of people this is an eye opening message.
