DEALING with INSULTů.Lord Buddha
The Buddha explained how to handle insult and maintain compassion.
One day Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him. "You have no right teaching others," he shouted. "You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake."
Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man "Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?"
The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, "It would belong to me, because I bought the gift."
The Buddha smiled and said, "That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself."
"If you want to stop hurting yourself, you must get rid of your anger and become loving instead. When you hate others, you yourself become unhappy. But when you love others, everyone is happy."
The young man listened closely to these wise words of the Buddha. "You are right, o Enlightened One, "he said. "Please teach me the path of love. I wish to become your follower."
The Buddha answered kindly, "Of course. I teach anyone who truly wants to learn. Come with me."
If you are right then there is no need to get angry
And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry.
Patience with family is love,
Patience with others is respect,
Patience with self is confidence and
Never Think too Hard about the unhappy PAST,
For It tends to bring Tears...
Don't project your thought to worry about the FUTURE,
For It brings Fears, worries and anxieties...
Live this Moment meaningfully with understanding and a Smile,
For It brings Cheers and joy to ALL !!!!
Every test in our life can make us bitter or better,
Every problem comes to make us or break us,
Choice is ours to make - whether we become victim or victorious !!!
Search for someone with a beautiful heart not for just a beautiful face.
For inner beauty is much better then mere physical beauty.
but of course if you can have both then you are truly blessed.
Remember me like pressed flower in your Notebook.
It may not be having any fragrance
but will remind you of my existence forever in your life.
Do you know, why Nature created gaps between fingers?
So that someone who is special to you, can come and fills those gaps by holding your hands forever.
GOD BLESS ALL.
