Dear Gurudev, when strong emotions like anger arise, it’s difficult to control them, and I do things I regret afterwards. How to deal with that?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Come on now, isn’t it better than before?

Before also you used to get angry, but now it is better. Keep doing yoga, keep doing all the practices. That should bring your anger down. If it doesn’t bring your anger down, then only God can help you; good luck!

Still if you’re angry, then be angry. It will be some entertainment for others, at your cost. In the world that is also needed. A little spice here and there, some pickle here and there, some pepper here and there. As long as it doesn't get into your eyes, pepper is also okay.
