SRI BHAGAVAN: "Suppose somebody comes and gives you a fine slap. Now, what has happened? The hand has hit this side. It's hot here for a few minutes. That's all. So where is the problem? You can think of it as some kind of good exercise for your cheeks, for your head and then go about it.
But then you are thinking, who is that rogue who hit you, why did he hit you, how to get back at him, how to punch him, all the things that happened.
That's what we call suffering. The fact is simple. Just one hand came and hit your cheeks or somebody kicked you in the back. That's all. So many times you've fallen down. So what? But why are you making such a big fuss out of it."
