From anger arises delusion and bewilderment. From delusion comes memory loss; from loss of memory comes the destruction of the intellect. From the destruction of the intellect man is lost.

– Bhagavad Gita 2.63

The verse prior to this Shri Krishna emphasises our lust for material goals or sense gratification and leading on from those desires arise anger. Unable to control our reactions can cause great devastation to our lives and others. Anger is one of the greatest enemies of mankind. Through it we lose what makes us truly human. Often lifelong relationships, businesses, friendships, can be torn by a few moments of anger. This enemy should be avoided by us at all times, it can only serve to degrade and poison our lives.

I pray that anger stays far from your mind allowing us to know who we truly are.
