Bhagavad Gita 5.23
saknotihaiva yah sodhum
prak sarira vimoksanat
kama krodhodbhavam vegam
sa yuktah sa sukhi narah
Before giving up this present body, if one is able to tolerate the urges of the material senses and check the force of desire and anger, he is well situated and is happy in this world.
Anger is a natural response to perceived threats. The instinctive, natural way to express anger is to respond aggressively. When Anger gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems at work, in personal relationships, and in the overall quality of life. This session is meant to help us understand and control anger. We can’t get rid of, or avoid, the things or the people that enrage us, nor can we change them, but we can learn to control our reactions and learn to respond to anger in a controlled, healthy way. In this session, we will be covering:
- A vedic approach in understanding the origin and dynamics of Anger and its consequences on body, mind and behavior.
- Various ways of handling anger and their symptoms, and exploring our own style of reactions.
- Reasons to control and manage anger for avoiding worsening the conflicts and wasting our time and energy.
- how to resolve repressed anger, constructively handle anger by transforming into assertiveness.
- Learn various physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual techniques for conquest of Anger.
