Radhanath Swami on Lust, Anger and Greed

Wrath is one of the great enemies that must be controlled somehow or the other. Lust is another great enemy and, when it is unfulfilled, it creates wrath. When there is wrath, there is offence, and when there is offence one falls down into material existence - lower and lower and lower. To control anger is very difficult. Greed for accumulating more and more worldly things, things which we do not really need, will also degrade us. These three - lust, anger and greed - are all interconnected. Just one of these gives rise to the others. These are the three gates that lead to hell. And any sane person must give them up because they lead to the degradation of the soul.
