Do not be afraid of insult, disrespect, dishonour, abuse or harsh words. Wear them as ornaments around your neck.
Many worry themselves a lot if they hear a little scandal about themselves. Do not be afraid as these are vain sounds only. They are merely vibrations in tine air. They are nothing at all. Allow scandals to enter through one ear and pass out immediately through the other. You are the pure, all-pervading immortal Atman in whom there is no sound. You are beyond all sounds. Nothing can affect you; you are invulnerable.
