#26 Spiritual Warrior 4, Ch 3: Managing Anger

Complexity: 
Easy

video discussions of Bhakti-tirtha Swami's Spiritual Warrior book series


Our Spiritual Warrior video series, hosted by Indrani dasi, discusses the book series of the same name by the late Bhakti-tirtha Swami.

This episode examines a section of his book Spiritual Warrior 4, "Conquering the Enemies of the Mind," and deals with one such enemy, anger. Anger management is an essential technology for the spiritual warrior.

Why does anger develop?
What triggers it?

The Srimad-Bhagavatam says this about anger:

"A person who desires liberation from this material world should not fall under the control of anger because when bewildered by anger one becomes a source of dread for all others." (Bhagavatam, 4.11.32)

Spiritual Warrior 4 goes on to explain that envy, greed, madness, illusion, fear, and lust all lead to anger. There are ways to recognize anger and its effects. Anger causes an adverse chain reaction in our consciousness. But all anger-related troubles can be avoided simply by honoring and addressing the situation properly from the very beginning.
