Hare Krsna! Glories to Srila Prabhupada Ji. I am an educated engineer in my 30s. My new manager at work constantly belittles and insults me. I am polite and nice and he walks all over me. I grew up with the mindset that you can kill them with your kindness however I feel that I should stand-up for myself. This will involve me being rude to him to drive the point home. Is that wrong according to Lord Sri Krsna / Bhagavat Gita? I was reading Bhagavat Gita As It Is by Srila Prabhupada ji and in chapter 1verse 32-35, it says the following:"As a natural devotee of the Lord, Arjuna did not like to retaliate against his miscreant cousins and brothers, but it was the Lord's plan that they should all be killed. The devotee of the Lord does not retaliate against the wrongdoer, but the Lord does not tolerate any mischief done to the devotee by the miscreants."The verse says that the devotee should not retaliate. So should I continue being polite to my manager even though he is rude? I really need help. Hare Krsna!!
