MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 28.8.2.
8. How To Control Anger-2.
When you become angry with your servant when he fails to supply your usual milk on a day, raise a question within yourself :-
"Why should I be a slave to milk?"
Then the wave of anger will at once naturally subside.
It will not arise on other occasions also, if you are careful and thoughtful.
Control anger by Kshama (forgiveness), Daya, patience, tolerance, universal love (Visva-Prema), mildness, Viveka, Vichara, Atma-Bhava, Udasinata, Nirabhimanata and such other virtues.
Forgive and pity the man who does you harm.
Consider censure as a blessing, ornament and nectar.
Develop universal love by service, charity, Brahma-Bhava. Recall any calm and pure state, which when once brought to mind, suppresses the hatred and brings composure.
When anger is subdued, rudeness, pride and envy will vanish of themselves.
Prayer and devotion will root out anger.
