[TD="align: left"]It is sad thing that nowadays the suicidal tendency is on the increase among the youth in particular and others in general. Almost every day we read in the newspapers such cases of suicides. How foolish it is to think of suicide! Such a precious gift of God – the human body – to be destroyed for petty matters. It is the cowardly and the weak-minded who are afraid to face challenges and difficulties in life take recourse to such foolish acts. A hero who is ready to face challenges with courage and boldness never thinks of committing suicide but always tries to find remedies to solve them.

Life is not so cheap that we can play with it. The body has come into existence not out of an accident but out of the law of Karma. If our sufferings are the result of our past actions, we have full freedom to change them by performing good actions. Most of the people feel frustrated when their desires are not satisfied and try to commit suicide. But they forget the eternal law that we get only what we deserve and not what we desire. Why not increase our power of deserving things by sincere and honest hard work?

Once in a state of depression, Sri Anna Hazare wanted to commit suicide. Just before he attempted it, Swami Vivekananda's small booklet came to his hand. He read thoroughly again and again. The impact was such that his entire thinking underwent drastic change. He realized the worth of the human life after reading some teachings of Swami Vivekananda.: "Blessed are those whose bodies gets destroyed in the service of others." "They alone live who live for others; the rest are more dead than alive." After reading such inspiring messages he changed his plan and decided not to destroy body but to offer it for the service of fellow human beings. He went back to his village and started working for the people there. People look upon him as him as a savior, respect him, and bow down to him because of his great contribution in moulding their lives. The body which he wanted to destroy and offer to crows and vultures by committing suicide is being honoured by thousands.

Those who have faith in God and believe that it is His will that wants us to suffer in order to learn lessons from suffering, only to rise above them in due course, surrender themselves to that Supreme Divine being and never think of committing suicide. God is like a big sponge or shock absorber. Pass on your sufferings to Him, pray to him for help and ask for strength to bear them with a tranquil mind, sufferings will pass away like clouds. How much the boy Prahlada suffered! His own father Hirajnyakasipu tortured him, harassed him but his faith in God was such that the Lord had to protect him.

The ultimate goal of human life is to realize God or Self or Atman eternally present in the depth of human body. If you are depressed because you could not achieve worldly success, take it in a positive way and think that your life is not meant for petty things of this world but God wants you to strive for higher spiritual things which can give you infinite peace and happiness, and thus you can overcome all your miseries like birth, death, disease, old age, etc., once for all. Sufferings are related only to body and the mind but soul within is free from all such bondages. Blessed are those who learn lessons from sufferings, instead of running away from the problems by committing suicide. Try to find permanent solutions for them by striving for spiritual enlightenment.

It is a general belief that the person who cuts short his life by committing suicide becomes a ghost. Since he has taken law of nature in his own hands, he will not get another body till the allotted life-span is over. Till then has to remain in a subtle body; this state is supposed to be a state of terrible suffering. Even after getting another body, he has to suffer for his previous karma more intensely because of his terrible sin of killing his own body. Therefore, it is foolish to destroy one's body by committing suicide. Heroic souls work out their karma by their self-effort and, instead of destroying their bodies, they destroy the root cause of suffering, that is, bad impressions and tendencies through the practice of devotion, scriptural study, meditation and good actions.

Interesting read, thanks for sharing

Welcome Mals sister :).


Always share your problem with someone you trust and let the cat out of the bag, emotional baggage is your worst enemy, topped with fear and insecurity

You're very correct sister :).
