In this lecture Swamiji illustrates powerful analysis of the mind given by the Vedas. How the afflictions of the mind trouble us. What are the afflictions of the mind? The afflictions of the mind is anger, greed, desire and hatred. Vedas say these are manas rog or disease of the mind.

Anger, greed and desire is a disease of the mind, motivated by greed people go on hoarding when they know they are going to leave everything behind after death. No matter how much we earn and hoard it is never enough to satisfy the greed. At the end it is only two yards of land that is used to bury and all that you earn, leave behind. Swamiji narrates with beautiful examples the disastrous consequence of anger and greed.

‘Duniya me khoob kamaya kya hira kya moti, par kya karu yaaro kafan me jeb nahi hoti’

But bigger than greed is desire because desire is the root cause of greed and anger. Fullfilment of desire leads to greed and non fulfillment of desire leads to anger. Desire can be in multitude form in terms of material comfort, emotional comfort or in terms of prestige and status. Any obstruction in the fulfillment of desire ignites anger. Anger has its seed in the non fulfillment of desire.
These mental afflictions trouble our us more than the physical afflictions and many a times causes ‘Vyadhi’ or disease. How to overcome the disease of the mind? Listen to the full series for solutions.
