Sayings of Swami Adbhutananda

Whenever he saw somebody angry he would say: “Don’t touch him. He has become an untouchable. If you touch him, you will have to bathe to purify yourself again.”

If anyone did something wrong out of anger, Latu Maharaj (Swami Adbhutananda) would not say anything to him until his anger had subsided. He used to say: “It is a waste of energy, a fruitless endeavour, to try to calm a person who has lost his temper. It works better if you talk to him when he has regained his composure.”
