What is the protection against God's anger?.....by Rumi
A sober-minded man said to Jesus,
"What in this existence is hardest to bear?"
"O dear soul," he replied,
"the hardest is God's anger,
from which Hell is trembling as we are."
"And what is the protection against God's anger?"
"To abandon your own anger at once."
Mathnawi IV: 113-115
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
