Two friends had to face a certain odd behavior of one of their Acquaintances who behaved quite strange for a while depicting his self interest crossing the limit..

One was disturbed beyond..

  • "I'm sensing a Personality in my circle of known people with whom I should be on guard here afterwards in all future dealings.. This attention is very much the needed action from my side right from this moment as long as his interactions continue with me in the coming days!
  • How can this person behave so selfishly?  He appears to be really a mean personality.. Never cares a bit for others.. I can't tolerate him any more.. It's a mistake from my side to be close with him.. I never came across a man like him.. A man of back stabbing nature..
  • God will never forgive such a person.. So nice words in front.. The next moment he back stabs if one is not careful.. Let me quickly recount all my dealings with him and close the issues one by one.. He is a specimen of his kind.. Always his interests and his topics.. Such a man is really a dangerous person around us!"

And as those thoughts continued subsequent to that, similar words flowed from his lips freely and in no time all had a certain fueling effect as the like minded people around too strengthened that in no time and the man was soon fuming with rage losing the decency required in the situation and thus lost his peace of mind totally for quite some time!

The other too, no doubt was equally affected but he remained calm and after a while met the first friend.. Seeing him cool, the first man remarked.. 

  • "Very strange! How can you leave off the man so carelessly and remain cool when he had behaved so badly with both of us.. I could never take the issue light!"
The second one smiled and said, 
  • "No, dear.. I'm not careless here.. Remember.. The first two lines of your decision as soon as the man behaved so badly with us.. In my mind.. I too firmed up on those two and have instantly come to attention there.. 
  • The only difference here is.. Subsequently, you've allowed your mind to take over you freely where as I never allowed that in spite of the same type of feelings tried to over take me and that alone made the final difference to the levels of our mental peace!"

Further to what the friend had said, from distance Sloka 1 of Bhaja Govindam was heard on the loud speakers being recited melodiously with the meaning explained in parallel..

Bhajagovidam bhajagovidam govindam bhaja muudhamathe

samprapte sannihite kale nahi nahi rakshati drukun karane.

'Worship Govinda! Worship Govinda! Worship Govinda (limiting yourself to the ordained duties).. When the end approaches, the Grammar Rules (the craving for materialistic gain and recognition) will not save you!'


  1. Wise thoughts that can help us in the long run.

  2. Very well said. We need to realize when and at what point should we stop from being carried away by our own thoughts. The day we learn to rule on our thoughts and minds, we shall certainly find the way to mental peace.

    1. Very rightly said, Dipanwita..Very much the right message here.. A little patience from our side, we can avoid the unnecessary turmoil retaining only that required in the situation.. Thanks for a good comment here!

  3. Great article and very important for each one of us to slow down and think about this.

    1. Thanks Latha.. Nice reconfirmation of the message of the Post!
