Krodha – anger

«While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. 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» (Bhagavad-gītā, 2.63-64).

Krodha is considered one of man’s enemies. According to various texts of yoga culture and more generally of Hindu culture, krodha leads man to perdition, because it takes him into a mental chain of frustration and lack of lucidity.
