Short Inspirational Story On Anger(A Buddhist Story):
One day buddha was sitting under a tree when suddenly a furious brahmin priest came to him and started abusing him.
The brahmin priest thought that Gautam Buddha would reciprocate in the same manner.
But to his utter surprise there was not the slightest change in the expressions on his face.
So now the brahmin became more furious.
He hurled more and more abuses at Buddha.
However, Gautam Buddha was completely unmoved actually there was a look of compassion on his face.
And ultimately the brahmin priest was tired of abusing him.
And he asked him “I have been abusing you like anything but why are you not angry at all”.
Gautam Buddha calmly replied ” My dear brother I have not accepted a single abuse from you”.
“But you heard all of them didn’t you” the brahmin priest argued. and the Buddha said
“I do not need the abuses so why should I even hear them”.
Now the Brahmin priest was even more puzzled.
He could not understand the calm reply from Gautama Buddha.
Looking at his disturbed face Buddha further explained “All those abuses remain with you”.
“It cannot be possible, I have hurled all of them at you” the brahmin priest argued.
“But I have not accepted even a single abuse from
you dear brother, suppose you give some coins to somebody and if he does not accept them with whom will those coins remain”
The Brahmin replied “If I would give coins to somebody and they would not accept them then naturally the coins would remain with me”.
With a meaningful smile on his face Buddha said “Now you are right! the same has happened with your abuses. You came here and hurled abuses at me but I have not accepted a single abuse from you so there is no reason to be angry with you”.
The Brahmin remains speechless.
He was ashamed of his behavior and begged Buddha for forgiveness.
In Life your inner calmness and your peace are yours and sometimes like a bouncer or a security guard you need to protect your inner calmness and peace of your mind.
You choose what you accept and what you do not accept.
Your inner calmness relies solely on your opinion.
So don’t respond to what people say if it makes you angry.
That is the biggest strength of wise men.
