There are no bad people 世界上没有坏人

There are no bad people

The Divine can only be found in deep rest (meditation).
Do you know what the obstacles to deep rest are? It is the cravings and aversions in the mind.
If the mind is filled with cravings and aversions, rest is not possible. And if there is no rest, the goal of Sadhana (spiritual practices) cannot be achieved.
That is why we need to be free from the cravings and aversions in our mind.
So, how do we do that?
'I don’t need anything from anyone', this is what we need to keep in our mind.



When we don’t need anything from anyone, we will not have cravings towards anybody. When there is no craving, there will be no aversion.

Don’t think of anyone as a bad person. There is no bad person in the world. If people do something bad, it is because of their ignorance or lack of awareness, or because their mind has been hurt. So, don’t have negative opinions about anybody.



Q: Gurudev, you just said that we should not consider anyone as bad. If others treat us badly, how do we react to that?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: If others have a negative opinion about you, it is their problem, not yours. From your side, do not consider anyone as bad.
By doing this, your mind will be clear and pleasant and your intellect will be sharp. Otherwise, the people whom you consider as bad will begin to haunt your mind like a ghost.
When such thoughts get into your mind, you will not be able to do something creative.


Q: If somebody has really done something wrong towards us, what should we do?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: When someone does something bad to you, think, why would they do it? One reason could be that they are not healthy.
Do you see a fool or a mentally ill person as a culprit? No!
If a mentally ill person says something bad to you, do you take their words seriously? No. You just move on knowing that he is mentally ill.
So, when someone says something bad to you, think of it in the same way. When a disturbed person says something bad, why should you feel disturbed?

Q: In order to be peaceful, we have to learn not to expect from others. But in day-to-day life, at the office or at home, different people are supposed to do different things. If they don’t do it, then problems arise. Everyone has to do his or her job. Please guide us on this.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: If someone does not do the job that he or she is supposed to do, then we need to tell them to do it. We need to exercise our authority there.
If there are lazy people who don’t do their work, we cannot sit quiet. We need to make them aware of their duty.
If we have craving or aversion towards them then we cannot bring awareness in them. It will only make us angry.


Q: What is the meaning of Cause and Effect?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Cause and Effect are called ‘Karana’ and ‘Karya’.
Cow is the cause, milk is the effect. If there is milk, it is because of the cow.
The cause for the cow is grass. The cause for the grass is the Earth. The cause for the Earth is the Sun.
Behind every happening, there is a cause.
Paramakarana
, the cause of all causes is the Divine. That is why, it is said, ‘Tasmai Namah Paramakarana Karanaya.’
The cause of all causes is Shiva.


世界上没有坏人

神性只有在深层的休息(静心)的时候找到。
你知道深层休息的障碍是什么吗?是心智的渴求和厌恶。如果心智充满着渴求和厌恶,休息就成了不可能的事情。如果没有休息,那么就不能达到Sadhana(灵性修持)的目的了。

这就是所以我们需要让我们的心智从渴求和厌恶里解脱。但是,我们要如何做到这一点呢?
“我不需要从任何人身上得到任何东西!”这就是我们需要深深记在脑海里的。

当我们不需要从任何人身上得到任何东西的时候,
我们就不会再去对任何人有所渴求了。渴求没有了,厌恶也不会延伸
不要去想别人是坏人。世界上是没有坏人的。如果有人做了些坏事,那是因为他们的无知和觉知力有限,又或者是他们的心智受过伤害。所以不要对任何人有负面的看法。

问:古儒吉,你刚刚说我们不应该把别人当作是坏人。如果别人亏待了我们,那我们该怎么办呢?
古儒吉:如果别人对你有负面的看法,那是他们的问题,不是你的。但是你不可把别人当成是坏人。这样一来,你就可以保持心智的清晰和愉快,进而让你的智力犀利。不然的话,那个你认为是坏人的人将会像鬼魂般的缠着你的心智。如果这样的念头出现在你的脑海里,那你就没办法成为有创意的人了。


问:如果有人真的做了对不起我们的事情,我们该怎么做呢?
古儒吉:当有人做了对不起你的事情时,你就想一想为什么他们要这么做呢?这也只有一个原因而已,那就是他们是不健康的。
你会把精神病患或是傻子当成是混蛋吗?不会的!
如果有精神病患对着你说了不动听的东西,你会把那些话当真吗?不会的。你只会放下它因为你知道他是个精神病患。所以,当别人说了些不好听的话语,你就像刚才那么去想吧。如果一个困扰你的人对你说了些不好的话,为什么你要因此被困扰呢。

问:为了达到内在的平静,我们要学着不从别人身上渴求些什么。但那时在日常生活里,在公司,在家里,不同的人都该做他们份内的事情。如果他们不去做那些份内事,那么问题就会延伸。每个人都应该做自己该做的事呀。请您给我们指导这件事情。

古儒吉:如果有些人没有做好自己的份内事,那么我们就得告诉他们他们该做的。我们需要在这里锻炼我们的威权。如果有懒散的人没把他们的份内事做好,我们是不可以保持沉默的。我们必须让他们清楚知道他们的任务。如果我们对他们有着渴求和厌恶,那我们就不能带给他们觉知了。这只会让我们愤怒而已。

问:“前因后果”是什么意思?
古儒吉:“前因后果”是“Karana”和“Karya”。牛是“前因”,牛奶是“果”。有牛奶的原因是因为有牛。牛的“前因”是草。草的“前因”是土地。土地的“前因”是太阳。
所有事情的发生都是有个“前因”的。Paramakarana
所有“前因”的因,是神性。所以说“Tasmai Namah Paramakarana Karanaya”,一切的因是湿婆(Shiva)。
