Yesterday a newly arrived youth told Bhagavan about the vagaries of his senses to which Bhagavan said, “All that is due to the mind. Set it right.”
“That is alright, Swami, but however much I try to reduce this anger, it comes on again and again. What shall I do?”
“Oh! Is that so, then get angry with that anger; it will be alright” said Bhagavan. All people in the hall burst out laughing. A person who gets angry with everything in the world, if only he introsepts, and enquires why he does not get angry with his anger itself, will he not really overcome all anger?
