Gurudev, if someone is continuously speaking badly, then what should one do?

If someone is doing something continuously, then that is their nature. Can you say that every day the dog is barking? It is a dog only who can bark! You can’t expect a dog to say, 'Meow'. Same way, you should understand that this is their nature.
If they do it continuously then you should be more relaxed! If someone does it once in a while, then you should be concerned, ‘What has happened? Has this person eaten something wrong or what?' We can think about it. When someone is doing it continuously, it brings freedom to you. That is how they are. Why do you even have to worry about it? Just move on. At least the dog is in your house, and not in the neighbor's house! The dog in your home, you can at least feed him something and make him shut up. But if the neighbor's dog is crying all night and barking all day, you can’t do anything with that! So you simply have to accept the situation as it is. Keep telling your mind this and keep moving. Buy nice ear plugs and put it in your ears, or think this dog is singing a lullaby and go to sleep.
