Haiku #34

Amorousness, Rage,

Avarice, three gates to Hell,

So relinquish them… // 16 – 21 //

The three doors to Hell. Hell is a mental state in which a person just loses his peace of mind and can think nothing but about ‘Kaam’ (amorosuness), ‘Krodh’ (rage) and ‘Greed” (avarice). Once, one is, into any one of these or led by these, it leads to destruction of humanity within.

What we need to think is that are we really Humans? Are we lead by these vices in our lives? Do we have the slightest idea of these affecting or guiding us in our lives? Let’s introspect.

The Shlok for your reference :
त्रिविधं नरकस्येदं द्वारं नाशनमात्मन:
काम: क्रोधस्तथा लोभस्तस्मादेतत्त्रयं त्यजेत् ।।
There are three gates leading to the hell of self-destruction for the soul—lust, anger, and greed. Therefore, all should abandon these three.

Am a teacher by profession. A student of History and international politics. Believe that Bhakti (Devotion) and Humanism can only save Humanity. Revere all creation. My thoughts are influenced by His Holiness Pandurang Shashtriji Athavale
