“आप कहते हैं कि क्रोध किए बिना काम नहीं चलता है। इस तरह आप अपने क्रोध की सफाई देते हैं। मगर आप यह कब कहेंगे कि प्रेम किए बिना काम नहीं चलता है? आप प्रेम पर विश्वास कब करेंगे?”
उपाध्याय प्रवीण ऋषि
Gurudev has the power to dispel our anger and other passions with his simple and powerful words. He always speaks about how anger is only a destroyer. Anger can only ignite the heart in a negative manner. We need to realize that we have the choice. We can choose anger or we can choose love. We can choose violence or we can choose non-violence. We can choose construction or we can choose destruction. The power to choose is what makes human birth such a rare gem. We just have to remind ourselves to choose love over anger, and construction over destruction.
