How to handle gossip,rumours,slander on us even if we are innocent?

Updated 3 days ago in General

Sri Acharyar U Ve Velukudi Swamigaluku namaskaram

Swami please help with answers

It’s too hard to be an pure vaishnavite in this cruel world.

Adiyen is losing hope sometimes because of these incidents.

Did our paramatma,azhwars,ardent devotees endure such circumstances and how did they handle it?

Even though we have vaishnavite principles ,we have to make it applicable in reality else all our good efforts will be futile.

நமஸ்காரம், 

சர்வம் கிருஷ்ணார்ப்பணம். 

அனைத்தும் அவன் செயல் என நம் பணியை நேர்மையுடன் செய்து கர்ம யோகத்தில் இருக்கலாம் என்பது அடியேனின் எண்ணம்.

சர்வம் கிருஷ்ணார்ப்பணம்.

Srimate Ramanujaye Namaha

Swami, yes it a tough situation to go through.

But if we realize that all the situations and events around us are only manifestation of our own karma, which is making others behave so.. we will not get angry at the situation or people..

But yes it is not easy to apply it at the moment we are experiencing such difficult situations..

This is the solution that a jnani would apply, but most of us are not there.. but we can try..

However for a devotee, he immerses himself in the nine forms of devotional service- “śravaṇaṁ kīrtanaṁ viṣṇoḥ
smaraṇaṁ pāda-sevanam
arcanaṁ vandanaṁ dāsyaṁ
sakhyam ātma-nivedanam

And when one is so busy in these nine activities, the mind will have little or no chance to play tricks and make us sad by what other people do to us..( whatever others do, if we dont let our mind, they cannot affect us)

This are theoretical answers. I have been and am still  struggling to apply these..

But hopefully by constant prayers to Acahryas and Lord we may be able to apply to some degree.

Adiyen

Shri Udayavar, what Sivaraja says is correct: let all the gossips, rumours and slanders go to Krishna. You and I may not be able to bear such mud-slinging but Krishna converts it to something positive (like how He converted an Asthra that came to kill Arjuna in to a Garland for Himself in the Maha Bharath war). “Pottruvaar potrudhalum, thootruvaar thoorudhalum pogattum Kannanukke” (Let the praises of those who praise and the slanders of those who slander go to Krishna alone.)

May be you don’t want to let go off the praises and that is what is stopping you from KrishnArpanam Asthu. Even then it is okay. At least get rid of the bad things. Later when you realize the burden of the praises, you can let go of that too.
