Foreword
 
"Man is no different from animals," says Sri Sankara Bhagavatpada in hisSutrabhasya. "Pasvadibhiscavisesat".
Texts tell us: "Human beings and animals have the same urges. They eat and
sleep and copulate and besides, the feelings of fear are common to both.What, then, is the difference between the two? It is adherence toDharma that distinguishes human beings from animals. Without Dharmato guide him man would be no better than an animal.""
Aharanidrabhayamaithunam ca samanyametat pasubhirnaranam
 
Dharmo hi tesamadhiko visesah dharmena hina pasubhissamanah" 
  The Lord says in Bhagavad Gita: "When a man thinks of the objects of sense, attachment to them is born; from attachment arises desire; andfrom desire arises anger. Anger causes delusion and from delusion springsloss of memory; loss of memory leads to the destruction of the sense of discrimination; and because of the destruction of his sense of discrimination man perishes." 
Dhyayato visayan pumsah sangastesu pajayate
 
Sangat samjayate kamah kamat krodho bhijayate
 
Krodhad bhavati sammohah sammohat smrtivibhramah
 
Smrtibhramsad buddhinaso buddhinasat pranasyati 
Commenting on these two slokas of the Gita, Swami Chinmayananda saysthat evil develops from our wrong thinking or false imagination like a treedeveloping from the seed. Thought has the power to create as well as todestroy. Rightly harnessed, it can be used for constructive purposes; if misused it will be the cause of our utter destruction. When our mindconstantly dwells on a "sense-object" an attachment is created for thatobject. When we keep thinking of this object with increasing intensity,our attachment to it becomes crystallized as burning desire for the same.But as obstacles arise to the fulfilment of this desire, the force that at firstcaused the desire now turns into anger.
