The Anger Story

One beautiful sunny day, Buddha walked into one small village.<>

Suddenly, a young man approached him and started offending him.<>

He said: “Who are you to teach the world? You are just as dumb as everyone else, and you are a scammer!”<>

Buddha was not upset by this. <>

He asked the man: If you get a present for someone and that person does not receive it, who does this present belong to?”<>

To which the young man responded: “It belongs to me because I was the one who got it!”<>

Buddha just smiled at that and said: <>

“That is a right young man. But you see the present is just the same as your anger.<>

When you get angry, and I do not get offended, the anger only returns and stays with you. <>

You are the one that is unhappy, and not me. <>So what do you do? You hurt yourself”<>

The young man was confused. Then Buddha continued: <>

“You see in order to stop hurting yourself, the first thing you should do is eliminate your anger and convert it to love.<>

You see, young man, when you hate others, you are the one that is unhappy. <>

But when you love others, then, everyone is happy.”<>
