2009 09 15. Tuesday.

At the usual Tuesday satsang, Amma spoke about the importance of constant introspection; looking dispassionately at the state of the mind and always bringing it back to calmness and peace. I try to practice this as much as I can. Very difficult to do when my emotions get stirred up for some reason or other.

I had an encounter with the fake American sadhu. I was passing near him and he started to go on and on about some Hindu festival or something. I got a little annoyed and said "You should really stop talking and listen for a change." I then walked away without bothering to see his reaction. I then got annoyed with myself for losing my cool. My emotions come up so quickly! I resolved (as always) to try and be more mindful.
