    But I admire the strength of the people who don't get revenge.

  5. Yes, I definitely agree. I've never been the type to seek revenge, because other people's lives and lessons are none of my business. I have plenty to occupy myself with regarding my own path.

    In modern day speak, vengeance camouflages as 'justice'. When someone has done something deemed 'wrong', 'revolting', 'evil', etc, the 'victim' and their families as well as those not directly related are filled with this implacable need for 'justice' which effectively means ensuring the perpetrator is 'sufficiently' punished. This need to see the other suffer in some way, and preferably to the extent that the victim and his/her family/friends/society has suffered is so strong, there will be no rest until such punishment is meted out. To quote a recent such victim, "there can finally be closure".

    It saddens me when I see this. Does inflicting as (as much)pain on another really help us feel better? How different are we to the perpetrator when we are prepared to willingly hurt them albeit through the distanced and third party agency of the 'justice system'?

    Ghandi so wisely noted: An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

    Thanks for raising this very important question.

  11. Respected and dearest Surjit ji,
    Sat Sri Akal and Pranaam:))
    Hope you and your loved ones are doing fine.
    A thought provoking post, extremely well written :)
    You are so right when you say that vengeance of any form is a complete sin. Not only does that shatter the inner world of the person who seeks vengeance but also destroys the life of the victim.
    And in no way does vengeance grant a feeling of satisfaction and wellbeing.
    Restraint of any hurtful feelings or resentment towards any soul turns to nonviolence and ultimately Humility :))
    And Humility opens up the Gates of Heaven!
    May God grant us the Wisdom and innate Strength to let go of our illfeeling of hatred and revenge.
    My Prayers and love for you always :))
