9. Hatred And Its Modifications

1.
Hatred and malice are two formidable passions.

They are so deeply implanted in your system that it is very difficult to root them out.

Pride is not so fearful as hatred and malice.

When a man is placed in a high position and earns much money and is thereby honoured and respected by all, he becomes very proud.

When he loses that position and fails to earn money, his pride vanishes.

But hatred and malice are two passions which are inveterate and need constant and diligent efforts for their eradication.

2.
Prejudice, intolerance, Ghrina, insolence, impertinence, scorn, contempt-these Vrittis are all modifications of the emotion of hatred.

Suspicion becomes prejudice by repetition.

Prejudice develops into ill-will (Ghrina) and intolerance.

Ill-will is a mild form of hatred.

When repeated, it develops into hatred.

Hatred, by successive repetition, becomes malice or extreme enmity.
