Maharajji reacted in a variety of ways to those of us plagued by anger; and all of those ways sooner or later brought the anger to the surface and helped us begin to let go of it.
Sometimes a devotee would become the object of a continuous barrage of abuse from Maharajji. The abuse, coupled with the underlying love, was a great panacea for even the most hidden and deep-seated anger.
For others it seemed as if situations just developed around Maharajji that forced anger to the surface like a badly inflamed boil.
And at just the right moment, Maharajji would be there with the necessary cup of milk to soothe the soul after surgery.
For two years, Maharajji made Dada do many things as part of the temple management that he avoided at home.
And throughout, Maharajji would abuse him to face and behind his back, from morning until evening. In the course of this training Dada learned to control his anger. After two years Maharajji asked Dada's wife if he got angry anymore, and she replied, only very rarely.
