Daily meditations by Swami Sivananda: 8th Nov – Ignore Criticism

8th November – Ignore Criticism

Are you the Atman or mind or body? Even though you have read my writings a thousand and one times, you still identify yourself with the mind and body and lose your mental balance when a little criticism is made. So strong is your egoism.

People criticize your body and mind or become your friends. Why do you get agitated then, my dear Krishna? You are still weak. You have not grown spiritually. Ignore criticism.

Why do you brood over past events? You cannot have peace of mind if you indulge in this habit. Rise above criticism and petty remarks. You will then enjoy peace of mind.
