Negativity

Oftentimes, the modern mind wants to shield itself from the bad things occurring in the world. Overprotection appears to have become more common. However, one needs to realize that evil exists in the world.

The Puranas explain the existence of evil using the idea that the world has entered an age of vice (Kali Yuga in sanskrit). Hence it is urged to keep this in mind and to follow the righteous path towards enlightenment.
