anger control

Hare Krsna Archana,

please read Bhagavadgita. Source of anger is lust and should be overcome (2.56, 62, 63, 3.37, 5.23, 26-27, 7.14, 16.1-4, 11-12, 18, 21, 51-53).
BG 3.5, 27, 29, 33, 5.14, 13.30, 32, 14.19, 18.60 tells that jiva is not an actor, gunas are. By first intellectually understanding and then realizing it, one's anger will disappear.

Through genuine spiritual practice, developing sattva guna, our anger gradually diminishes. One should also focus on things one can influence and not allow to be disturbed by others. Someone wrote me:

"After about two months being a vegetarian, I feel a very significant changes in my life and personality. First, I feel very light, as light as feather. I am also able to control my anger and desire better. Second, I become a patient person. When I was not a veg, I was easily felt bothered by things around me, but since I change my food, I am ready to receive anything."

Rigveda 10.83-84 contains Manyu sukta. Manyu, personified anger, is Nrsimhadeva.
