Remember Two Things

We do not procrastinate in the world; we do not postpone our vices like lust, anger and greed. We never say, "Okay, I will get angry tomorrow." Why don't you procrastinate saying, "I will commit this sin tomorrow." Who knows, you may feel better and be saved from committing that sin. Ravan had said to Lakshman, "Son! Remember two things. I am sharing this with you from my deathbed. Perform good actions immediately and do not procrastinate, and procrastinate all wrongdoing. Think, "Okay, I will do that tomorrow." What will happen is that because human emotions keep changing, who knows, maybe we won't have those bad feelings tomorrow and be saved from committing them.
