I like Giten a lot. He is fantastic. The presence and the impact he has on people. His wisdom and humor.”

Buddha said: if an evil-doer, seeing you practice goodness, comes and maliciously insult you, you should patiently endure it and not feel angry with him for the evil-doer is insulting himself by trying to insult you.
When you grow spiritually, you will find that many people will get upset with you, because your spiritual growth, your presence, your love, your joy, your silence, create a guilt, a resistance, in them.
A good man creates comparison in other people, which will hurt their ego.
A Jesus must be crucified, because his his love, his presence, his light, hurt the ego. A Socrates must be poisoned, because his truth and authenticity creates a comparison. It mirrors others lies and unauthenticity.
If you live with unconscious and unhealthy people, your consciousness and health is dangerous to them.
People will come an insult you, because you hurt their ego, you hurt their lies.
When people insult you, you should remain at your center, you should patiently endure the insult.
You should remain in your center, in your silence, and be aware and watch the insult. You should not be disturbed by the insult. If you are disturbed, the insulting person has defeated you.
You remain silent, collected and calm.
Buddha says just keep quiet, endure it, remain patient and do not get angry with the person.
