HOW ANGER IS CAUSED

When the desire is not gratified and when someone stands in the way of its fulfillment, the man becomes angry. The desire gets transformed into anger. Just as milk is changed into curd, so also, desire becomes changed into anger. The root-cause of anger is ignorance and egoism.

Anger arises when one is insulted, abused, criticised, when his defects are pointed out. Anger comes when someone stands in the way of gratifying one’s desire.

– Swami Sivananda

PAIN AT DEATH

The pain generally felt at death is due to the nature of the intensity of the desires with which one continued to live in the physical body. The more is the love for the Universal Being entertained in life, the less would be the pain and agony of departing from the body.

HANUMAN

Hanuman is said to have told Sri Rama: “From the point of view of the body, I am Thy servant; from the point of view of the jiva, I am a part of Thyself; from the point of view of the Atman, I am Thy own Self.” These three standpoints correspond to the three great systems of philosophy propounded by Madhva, Ramanuja and Sankara.
