[gita-talk] Fw: Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 16-12


Sixteenth Chapter


āśāpāśaśatairbaddhāḥ kāmakrodhaparāyaṇāḥ
īhante kāmabhogārthamanyāyenārthasañcayān

Bound by hundreds of ties of expectation, wholly given over to lust and anger, they strive to amass hoards of wealth by unrighteous means to satisfy their thirst for enjoyment of sensual pleasures.
As long as a man is attached to the body and the world, there is no end to his desires. In the forty-first verse of the second chapter, Lord declares that the intellect of the undecided (infirm) is scattered in endless diverse directions. The reason is that they, having turned away from the imperishable, assuming the existence of the world to be real, giving importance to the perishable, are attached to it.     
The people endowed with demoniacal nature think that the desire and anger are inherent in human nature. They do not perceive anything else besides desire and anger, their sight does not go beyond these. Such a man thinks that he can control others by becoming angry. But for how long the helpless person would stay under control? Since he is under control only due to his helplessness, as soon as he gets a chance, he will take revenge. Therefore the result of anger is only bad.

From Gita Prabodhini  by Swami Ramsukhdasji
