A very hot tempered man was told by his Guru to walk ten paces backwards every time his temper rose and he felt like lashing out. The man had gone to another village and arrived home quite late at night. He came home to find someone else was sleeping in his place. Thinking the worst of his wife he unsheathed his sword and was just about to kill the two of them.

 

Just then he remembered what his Guru had told him and so he stepped ten paces backwards. While he was doing this , he knocked off something  and the noise awoke the person sleeping in his place. It was his daughter. As soon as he realised who the person was , he was grateful to have taken those steps backwards. Therefore it is better to be a little hesitant before an act than to be sorry when it is too late.

My Comments:-

TAMIL VEDA TIRUK KURAL SAYS,

Great harm may be caused by anger.

Therefore one should restrain anger towards anybody-

Kural 303 (Tamil poet Tiruvalluvar)

 

If one wishes to safeguard oneself, one should control anger, If not it is bound to ruin oneself – Kural 305
