When I pray, my prayer takes its own time to be answered. In spite of being in difficulties, when we do not receive any help at that time, I become very upset. What to do at that time?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

When you are upset, you are upset. You cannot apply wisdom at that time. Even if you know all the knowledge, all the wisdom, when a gush of emotion comes, they all fail. All the wisdom fails. I would say, just relax. Take it as it comes. It’s okay to be upset sometimes in life. Never mind. You make life more colorful, more dramatic. Ask people around you, how they enjoyed when you really got upset!
