A snake bites if one goes close to it, while a scorpion stings. If hit by a stone, the dog chases the person and bites him. For all these, a person needs medical aid. The wild animals like lion and tiger attack and eat up man. But one cannot say how a man would react if another were to hit him. He may run away in fear, hit back in anger, offer a friendly smile, or just ignore. One cannot for sure say how he would react. One knows the behaviour of all living beings but not that of man! Human behaviour alone is unpredictable! ~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Once a person complained to me, “In my office all my colleagues are totally uncooperative”. I told him, “Be affectionate to all. This will surely bring about a drastic change.” After some time he came to me and said, “As per your advice I was affectionate towards all my colleagues. Yet none of them cooperate. All of them are mere cheats!” I then pointed to him, “I advised you to be affectionate to your colleagues and not just pose to be affectionate. This is the reason for your failure.” ~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
Oh Krishna! Whether I do good deeds or not, is secondary! But first, please keep me from doing sins! ~HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
