The Jagadguru Speaks…

Avoid Insulting Others


Man must always lead a happy life and be kind to all. Giving room to desire and hatred leads to all sorts of difficulties. We can understand this from the Itihasas and Puranas and also from day-to-day life.

However, some people have a strange defect: that is the inclination to insult others. This is also a cause for suffering.

Nobody should disgrace others. One must realize that everybody has self-respect and act accordingly. If the person treated with disrespect is strong enough, he will retaliate. There is no end to this. The cycle of insult and retaliation will continue for ever.

However, if the insulted person is judicious, he will ignore it. He will be silent and well collected within himself. He will not undergo agony as he has control of the mind. His day-to-day life will also be smooth with no anxiety.

However, the person who indulges in that sinful act will not be spared in life. He will have to bear the brunt of it.

That is why our ancestors have advised us to realize what is good in practical life and lead our lives accordingly.

Let us all understand this well, avoid insult to others and lead a peaceful life.

सुखं ह्यवमतः शेते सुखं च प्रतिबुध्यते ।

सुखे चरति लोकेऽस्मिन्न्वमन्तो विनश्यति ॥
