Conflict Management: Learn How to Handle Conflict in Life

A human being looks for happiness in the worldly life and everything he does is with the intent to be happy. So why have conflicts taken such a stronghold everywhere?

To answer this question let’s take a look at an example on managing conflict. Say two people are sitting beside each other on a bench. The person on the right, will say that the other person is sitting to their left. And the person on the left, will say that the other person is sitting to their right. In this situation who is correct and who is incorrect? Both people are correct according to their viewpoint. We cannot say one is incorrect and the other is correct.

Similarly, conflicts arise because of difference of viewpoints. By not understanding the other person’s viewpoint you get pulled into a conflict. The person who wants to avoid the conflict is the one who will have to understand the other persons’ viewpoint. Once we realize that everyone is correct from their own viewpoint, then there remains nothing in this world worth having a conflict over!

When it comes to conflict management, there are many interpersonal techniques to remove the misunderstandings between colleagues, spouses, children and parents, etc. With these techniques, managing conflict becomes easy, irrespective of the people between whom conflict has arisen.

These conflict management techniques are shown by Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, a spiritual master, who has disclosed all the possible keys of conflict management, which are practically applicable to any relationship.
