How to overcome the past

Looking back

Question: I find the past very painful.

Answer: The past should be viewed as destiny. If you think you had a choice in the past, the present will be spoiled because you regret the past. Continued regret about the past creates a lot of toxins in the body, the future is not bright.

Past is destiny, done. And future is your freedom.

In our teachings, we have karma and purushata - what you need to do. See the past as destiny, the future as free will, and live in the present moment. Or make the past as free will, the future as destiny, and crib in the present moment! (Audience laughs)
