Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
You know if it is so compulsive, so obsessive you do it. Just go ahead and do it. But that way you are going to hurt yourself! Hurt your hand! God is not in the statue or the idol in front of you, God is in your heart. We invoke God and bring it to the statue for some moments only and again we place it back in our hearts. Like the Ganapati idol in India, first we invoke the God in the idol, play with that for some time and after all that tell him to come back to us and reside back in our heart!! If such a feeling persists, just observe the sensation. See what is happening within you.
You know these types of violent tendencies also come because of the food you eat. All these are the Rajasik tendencies that come from food. Focus on you diet. Stay away from Rajasik food for sometime. Food does matter a lot. Listen to Narada Bhakti Sutra. Rejoice in the self. Be contented.
