What Are You Missing?

Think about all that is being missed in our Krishna Conscious life just because we adhere to the one impurity called sexual impurity. Or conversely, think about what we could do more in Krishna Consciousness when we get rid of this impurity. We would be more enthusiastic and less offensive. We become angry & offensive when our desires are not fulfilled.

A Myth About Anger

People have many myths about anger that cause them to categorize the issue in a certain way. For instance, some people consider anger to be biological or hereditary, but this myth does not have any solid foundation. Although some people are more prone to anger due to their psychophysical make-up or emersion in the modes of passion and ignorance, their socialization or quality of association will have a greater impact on their reactions. Although we do bring forth other infl uences into a situation such as our karma, which affects the ways in which we respond to specifi c situations, it is a myth that anger is biological and a permanent, unchangeable aspect of the body.

Two Causes of Sinful Life

What is the cause of sinful life? Lusty desires and anger; the two go together. If lust is not satisfied, then one becomes angry.

Anger

Anger is like fire, it will burn all good qualities if not subsided in the initial stage.
