The food we take is to be digested and the undigested food if any shall come out as excreta from our body after 24 hours, otherwise we fell sick. The excess water we drink shall come out within 4 hours, otherwise, we fell sick. The air we breathe in shall come out within one minute, otherwise, we fell sick. As such, Anger, Hatred, Jealous, etc., are within us years together. What will happen if they dwell in our bodies like that?  We become sick permanently. That is why our great saints say that we the fools feel that we are living daily....in fact, we are dying to some extent day by day. If our age increases what we presume....  is our life span increases or decreases?

So many efforts for bringing peace have been failed as they are merely external, touching only the outer surface. Really this problem is of the individual first and society afterwards. As such it needs to be tackled in that order first. As it is, individual minds which themselves lack peace and tranquility are trying to establish peace in the world. Is it not ridiculous? The mind which in its primordial state was absolutely pure and regulated has now been spoiled and polluted by our wrong ways and doings. It is now to be set right so as to resume its original state.
