When she said the word “hate”, the motivational speaker immediately said that “hate is the one word that is killing people’s relationships”. How insightful is this! Earlier, on hearing the words anger and ego, he said both these need to be curbed. “The ‘e’ needs to be kept and the go, needs to go”, says Gaur Gopal Das.
For that monk, love means service, prayer is a way to connect to God and technology is an absolute necessity to reach out to people and serve. The monk also shared a story where a man once came to him after facing a bad heartbreak. The man told the Guruji that he broke up with his girlfriend of 10 years after she spoke ill about his parents in an intoxicated state.
