Anger

Anger can be likened to a bull in a china shop. In the process of expressing its own truth, it destroys all the goodness that may still be around. Then the question arises: would it have been better to live with the minor untruth than to cause such extensive damage?

Anger is a vice which, in its gross form, will directly and instantly cause great harm to the self and others.

Sometimes we use the vice of anger for the sake of truth or what we believe to be right. We use it to justify the fact that someone else has lied or stolen or worse. However, anger in itself is wrong and thus it can never be justified. Two wrongs do not make a right. And someone else’s wrong does not give me the permission to commit an even greater violence.

Anger will finish only when we begin to understand the real damage it causes.

Om Shanti
