Gurudev, what should I do when someone insults me in a group or in public? Is it correct to complain about that?

See, when someone insults you, what can you do? You cannot control everyone’s mouth. In such a situation, you have only two choices: 1. You also behave in the same way and insult them. But that will not improve the situation in any way 2. You simply smile at their ignorance. Just tell them that every person has the right to their ignorance and to display it as well, and then be quiet See, even if someone insults you, it does not stay forever. For a few moments someone says something unpleasant to you, and it reaches your ears. But it is all temporary, just like bubbles in water. These unpleasant things come and go. Who in the world has the time to stop and brood over these petty situations, or to keep thinking about someone else? So when such things happen, do not worry and get disturbed by them.
