Why Anger? – Story

A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other.<>

He turned to his disciples smiled and asked.<>

“Why do people in anger shout at each other?”<>

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, “Because we lose our calm, we shout.”<>

“But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? <>

You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.” asked the saint.<>

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples. Finally the saint explained,<>

“When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot.<>

To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other.<>

The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance. What happens when two people fall in love?<>

They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small…”<>

The saint continued, “When they love each other even more, what happens? <>

They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love.<>

 Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. <>

That is how close two people are when they love each other.”<>

He looked at his disciples and said;<>

So when you argue do not let your hearts get dıstant, do not say words that dıstance each other more, or else there wıll come a day when the dıstance ıs so great that you wıll not fınd the path to return.”<>
