How to deal with lust and anger when they overcome my mind and I find it difficult or seammingly impossible at the time to shake them from my being???
One thing I have found that works sometimes is to take a Japa walk. But even if I do this often times it does not help and the lust will remain lingering in my being for several days.
PS -irrelevant general question: is there any spell check on this blog my computers built-in spell check does not work when I type in the blog thing...
Thanks so much!
HpS - ASA > AGTSP pamho. I guess the answer to your question is that in the beginning we are subject to so many passions. It is like children when they start to walk. But by natures arrangement they have extremely well padded buttocks and their parents keep an eye on them so their fall downs don't hurt them.
As I understand, one very senior Indian disciple of Srila Prabhupada went into Prabhupada's room in Mayapura and paid his obeisances crying. Srila Prabhupada was very concerned and asked, "What has happened?!". The devotee responded that every time he was going to Calcutta on assignments from Prabhupada he could not control himself and he was eating Rasagullas. Prabhupada laughed and said that it was O.K. In the beginning we have so much conditioning but if we just continue with the process it will go away. That is what I have experienced. Out of pride we should not take 1st, 2nd or 3rd etc initiation too soon, but just go on with Japa and Kirtana and honoring Prasadam and then it will all occur naturally.
