Overcome Suicidal Tendencies – Must Read

Thinking of suicide must read the following story.

Once in a state of depression, Sri Anna Hazare wanted to commit suicide. Just before he attempted it, Swami Vivekananda’s small booklet came to his hand. He read thoroughly again and again. The impact was such that his entire thinking underwent drastic change. He realized the worth of the human life after reading some teachings of Swami Vivekananda.: “Blessed are those whose bodies gets destroyed in the service of others.” “They alone live who live for others; the rest are more dead than alive.” After reading such inspiring messages he changed his plan and decided not to destroy body but to offer it for the service of fellow human beings. He went back to his village and started working for the people there. People look upon him as him as a savior, respect him, and bow down to him because of his great contribution in molding their lives. The body which he wanted to destroy and offer to crows and vultures by committing suicide is being honoured by thousands.

The ultimate goal of human life is to realize God or Self or Atman eternally present in the depth of human body.  If you are depressed because you could not achieve worldly success, take it in a positive way and think that your life is not meant for petty things of this world but God wants you to strive for higher spiritual things which can give you infinite peace and happiness, and thus you can overcome all your miseries like birth, death, disease,  old age, etc., once for all. Sufferings are related only to body and the mind but soul within is free from all such bondage.  Blessed are those who learn lessons from sufferings, instead of running away from the problems by committing suicide. Try to find permanent solutions for them by striving for spiritual enlightenment.
