HariH Om Namaskaar. Another most useful article by Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati. As always, with most practical solutions to the everyday problem that we face. In each of the talks/articles, when Pujya Swamiji discusses any issue/point, it is always backed by Sastra Pramaana based on what scriptures say. Often he quotes the exact source, the verse too, but even when he does not, like in this article, we can be assured that the principle is always followed. It is what he always preaches and teaches.
WHY DO WE ARGUE?
Different people have different perceptions and these different perceptions are the main cause of an argument. Dissimilar likes and dislikes are inevitable because two minds never think alike. This is the reason we have different perceptions for any given situation. One may perceive a situation objectively while another may be very subjective about the same. However, the person who is subjective is totally unaware of his or her own subjectivity. In an argument it is very fundamental to know that any issue is relative. For instance, there are arguments over which party is good, the Republican or the Democratic party? On this issue you can argue on both sides and the one who can argue tactfully will always win!
