MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 22.3.2


Chapter-22. Raga-Dvesha : 3.2

3. Raga As Painful As Dvesha-2


Whenever there is pleasure and Raga, there exist side by side fear and anger. Anger is only a modification of desire.

Fear and anger are two old associates of pleasure and Raga.

Fear and anger are hidden in Raga.

They constantly torment the mind.


Fear is hidden in Raga.

When you have got Raga for body, fear of death comes in.

When you have Raga for money, there is fear of losing money, as money is the means of getting objects of enjoyment. When you have Raga for a woman, you always take care in protecting her.

Fear is a very old, intimate friend of Raga.
