We should not be unduly worried about and dwell constantly on the elimination of our defects like passion, desires, anger, greed. By going on filling up our Chitta with constant remembrance of God or Self and taking Lord's name constantly, they will seep and saturate our heart in and around and by the sheer weight strangle all the Vasanas (latent tendencies) by throttling them to natural death.

Anger is an outburst of emotions, which are nothing but thoughts in the mind. Mind can be controlled by dealing with the situation from a practical standpoint with 'viveka' or discrimination.

 

If we put some ant-repellant around the sweets, the ants cannot get inside to the sweets. Similarly, lust, anger and fear would constantly pester our mind. We cannot avoid the attack of these on our mind by our intelligence.

 

Don't worry. Just like hunger and thirst, lust is also inborn. No doubt, we have to overcome it. But it is not as easy as we think. It will not be gone one fine morning. It will happen slowly and will take time. Constant prayers and chanting will help this happen

 

O my soul, remember thy God, thy years are rolling by without His sacred name

 

In the field of battle the fight has begun in right earnest and passion, anger, pride and ambition are the foes to be fought.

 

When a disciple sheds all the adverse modes of the mind like kama (desire), krodha (anger) etc. and completely leads his life with the clear understanding that it is the Guru who is running his life

 

Leaving the desires and anger, bless me to sing your divine names.

 

Repeat His name, and sins will disappear. Thus you will destroy lust, anger, the desire for creature comforts, and so on

 

There are passion and anger too like two huge mountains on either side. Without the Master, who can show the path?

 

Just as soap cleanses the cloth of its impurities, so also the mantra is a spiritual soap cleansing the mind. Just as fire cleanses gold of its impurities, so also mantra cleanses the mind of its impurities.

 

Wash out the thoughts of Concupiscence, anger, pride, greed and attachment from your mind.

 

Vaishnav is the one who has been addicted to the elixir of the name of God

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
