Anger: The Desease Of Mind

Origin of Anger is Desire and it is the one of the grossest mental afflictions. When it arises, it disturbs our inner poise. It causes a rush of blood to the head. We often regret what we say or do when we are in a rage.

Later, we wish that we had not become angry, and we wonder how we succumbed to it. The backlash of anger can remain inside us for much longer than the provocation that caused it.

Consequences of Anger: it makes us forget;

  • Good manners
  • Civility
  • Kindness

In its grip, humans forget basic respect, empathy, and compassion.
