Bhagavad Gita : Chapter II - 62

Attachment to objects

Dhyayato Vishayan Pumsaha Sangasteshuupa Jayate|
Sangath Sanjayate Kamaha Kamath Krodhobhi Jayate||

Once a man begins to think about material things, he gets attached to those objects. Out of that attachment is born desire and out of the desire comes anger, when there is an obstacle between you and the object you desire, then anger arises at the apparent cause of the obstacle. - SS

Bhagavad Gita : Chapter II - 60

Nature of the senses to go outward
Yatatohyapi Kaunteya Purushasya Vipaschitaha|
Indriyani Pramatheeni Haranthi Prasabham Manaha||

Arjuna, the senses are by nature prone to turbulence. Even for the most intelligent and balanced Purusha, who makes an effort towards self-realisation, when swayed by desires of the senses, the mind is dragged forcibly outward. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
