Anger is too dangerous

Anger can put our life in danger. It can ruin our career and jeopardise our future. Anger is a negative energy and so wise men since eons have been very vocal about the need of reining on this monster. A person in anger loses his power of discrimination and fails to understand what is right and wrong.  Overpowered by anger he takes irrational decisions which negatively impact his life.  His rashness and rudeness puts off even his near and dear ones. He loses people’s trust, respect of others and finally self respect. Sudden bout of anger is many times sufficient enough to cause considerable damage to one’s life.  An angry man never has any true friend. He neither does good to himself nor to others.

Krishna in Gita 2.63 explains in detail how anger leads to ones ultimate fall down, “From anger, complete delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the material pool.”  So next time before given in to anger we should contemplate on Krishna’s words of wisdom for our own benefit.
