Instigated by what does a person commit wrong and cruel acts, despite one's own resistance? Poojya Swamiji elucidates that it is the desire and passion born of rajo guna, that propels one into wrongdoing.

Describing the actions of Duryodhana, Swamiji explains how desire and greed can take one to any level of misconduct. They can completely blind its possessor and put him in immense agony and suffering. Our mind often generates desires and when its course is hindered, it turns into intolerance and anger. So, considering desire and passion as ever present and stark enemies lurking within, we should remain vigilant and cautious, not to allow them engulf our mind and intelligence at any time.

A man becomes bound when the mind and intelligence are enveloped by desires. So, with all keenness we must disown and leave all desires. When desires become weak and fall off, that is Liberation!
