No one filled with greed, fear and anger can achieve anything in this world. Excessive desires degrade a person. One cannot give up desires entirely. But there should be a limit to them. When they exceed the limits one goes astray. Desires are dreadfully dangerous. Today’s enemy may become tomorrow’s friend and vice versa. But desires are perpetual enemies. They haunt man ceaselessly. The Gita declares desire as the Nityashatru (eternal enemy) of man. Hence desire has to be kept under control. ‘Kamam hitva arthona bhavathi’ (One who has given up desire is free from worries). ‘Lobham hitva sukhee bhavathi’ (Overcoming greed one becomes happy). When we get rid of the impurities of mind , humanness turns divine.
