Realisation  and  repeated  memorization of the true knowledge is the only  one  solution for this  problem.  The ignorance is responsible for all the  anxiety  and tensions.  One should know that every one has climbed the time (Kala), which is the running train.  Death is the station at which one has  to  get  down.   Then  every one should face the Lord for the enquiry.

After the  enquiry  one  will  get either permanent happiness or permanent misery.   The journey of this train to that station is the human life which is only a fraction of second when it is compared to the infinite stream of time  set up from the beginning of the creation.  To think that the life is very  long  itself  is  ignorance.   Every  one  is  sitting  in  a  closed compartment  and realisation of the truth is the window through which every one  should peep to find the infinite time stream.  Only on such comparison the  human life becomes a small fraction of a second.  When the realization is  absent  and when there is no comparison the lifetime appears to be very long.   First  one  should  cross  this  illusion  of  time.  Similarly  the illusion  of  the  place.   The earth looks very large under the ignorance.

But if one realises the infinite space of this universe the entire earth is a  small  fraction of a pinhead.  Similarly one gets a comfortable seat and sits  on  it  thinking  that  he is settled in the life.  Another  person is moving  in the compartment in search of a comfortable seat and according to him  he  is  not  settled.  But when both these people look out through the window,  which  is  realisation  of  truth, then both realise that both are moving.   Similarly  one  thinks  that  his  co-passengers  are  his  close relatives and is worried about them.  But they get down at their respective stations  and  do  not remember this fellow at all.  Nobody remembers their relatives  of his previous birth.  

If one realises that the so-called close relatives like parents, wife, children etc., are only the co-passengers who get  down  at their stations, he will not have any tension or anxiety about them.   He  does  his  duties without these two.  Similarly when one thinks that  he  is his body itself, he feels that he is damaged by diseases.  

But if one realises that this body is only a dramatic dress needed for his role in  the  present drama, he is not worried about the damage of the body.  He feels that as if his shirt is damaged.  During the journey in the train one must constantly think about the interview and prepare for it.  In such case he  gets  permanent happiness after the enquiry eventhough he is traveling in a comfortless third class compartment.  If one forgets the interview and is  attracted  by the factors in the closed compartment, he is going to get permanent  misery  even  if he travels by a first class compartment.  

Thus, something is  good  according  to  the  ignorant  people  and  that is bad according  to the realised scholars.  This world is full of ignorant people and  only  very few realised scholars are present.  Therefore the behaviour of  a  realised soul is criticized and mocked by the large public.  But all the souls will realise  the  truth  after  the  death when they face the enquiry.   But  it  becomes  too  late  by  that  time  and  nothing can be rectified.  

Thus, a realised scholar never cares  for  the public and proceeds  in the true path decided by the true realisation.  Only such true knowledge can remove the tensions and anxiety.  The path of devotion can make you  forget the pain temporarily for some time.  It cannot remove the pain and anxiety on a permanent basis.  No other methods like rituals, worships,  etc., can solve this problem except the frequent memorization of the  true  knowledge.   True knowledge is the comprehensive outlook of  the whole  situation i.e., realised by looking through the window of the train. Ignorance is  the  limited  look  inside  the closed compartment, which is related to the comforts of seats and the bonds of co-passengers.

for real realization, one must get off the train....

sometimes all the "memorized knowledge" is false knowledge....

and sometimes what is good to the ignoramus is the good, and the enlightened has been misled....

until that train gets to the station, all views from it are self-limiting... such is the restriction of life.... enjoy the view and make the most of your trip... it is the travelling that is of value, not the arrival at the end.  if you spend all your travel time worrying about the destination you will have wasted a wonderful vacation...

He who knows not and knows he knows not, he is simple - teach him.
He who knows and knows not he knows, he is asleep - awaken him.
He who knows and knows that he knows, he is wise - follow him. "
