Q. Which technique should be used to manage anger? Smt. H: There are many techniques. Some people, when angry, lock themselves in the bathroom and start singing. Some people just go for a run for 1 or 2 Kms and come back. Some people take a cold bath, some go for shopping but don't buy anything. Some do some Asanas, Pranayama or meditation. There are various ways, every human will have to find out for themselves what helps them overpower their anger immediately. But something has to be done. Any yoga technique will help. Do Jalneti, then automatically the mind will settle down. Find out according to the time and situation what you can do. If your boss is shouting, you can do Yogendra Pranayama IV, which he will not be able to see. Main thing is bring some compassion, understand and love for the opposite person in your mind and don't react.

Q. My wife watches TV serials and recounts them with me. What can be done about this?

“Ahimsa is a such a subject that we seriously need to give a thought to because we are doing Himsa all the time. The first Himsa we do is to ourselves. People come and tell me, ‘Hansaji, I feel hurt very fast if someone doesn’t behave properly with me.’ Expecting others to behave in a certain way, speak and smile in a certain way, makes it difficult. All that is not possible. It is important to accept people the way they are. See their positive qualities and accept them.

“One simple way, even when you are getting angry, is to start smiling. The more you smile, the less the anger. Ultimately you will find out that people who are used to laughing are the ones who will help in stopping you from getting angry. This is a practical example.”

- Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra

Check this out on Chirbit Q. I am unable to detect the moment when I get angry. I realize it well after I have lashed out. What can I do? Dr. J: Have more lashing, then you will learn. Have more criticism, more people reminding you, then gradually you will learn. Smt. H: When this happens, naturally you will suffer more. Then more criticism, more reactions from people and so on. They say that unless a person doesn’t suffer thoroughly well in life, he doesn’t change. I would rather guide you that in that case, at least keep your mouth shut. That would be the first lesson. After you have expressed negativity, then you realize that it was too late. You will have done lots of Karmas then. So at least don’t do Karmas. Learn to be quiet, speak less and that would help you more.

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “The first step in the path of yoga is Ahimsa (Non-violence) - How should you deal with the external world? Because unless we do that, we will not be able to internalize ourselves as we are stuck in dealing with the outside world. So the first step is not to hurt others, or speak to them harshly or think badly of them. We do Karma through our hands, legs and speech. Intellectual people generally do Himsa through speech. When angry, even when you are quiet, you express anger through the eyes. Getting disturbed by anybody and hurting others so that they get disturbed, both are Himsa. Both are wrong.
