Mantra To Destroy Enemy In The Form Of Desire

From the Bhagvad Geeta

III 43 Chapter 3 Verse 43:
 
I was reading the other day that people in Denmark and older people are the happiest…On probing further it was discovered that the reason is because they have fewer expectations.
 
In the Krishna urges us to ‘do our best’ but ‘surrender the rest’ in other words surrender the fruit of the action…In the 12th verse of the 12th Chapter Krishna proclaims that on doing the above, peace immediately follows…
 
Coming back to Chapter 3 Verse 43, of the Bhagvad Geeta:
 
Evam Buddheh param buddhwaa samstabhyat maanam aatmanaa
Jahi satrum mahaabaaho kaama roopam duraasadam

Thus knowing Him who is superior to the intellect
An restraing the self by the Self, slay thou, O mighty armed Arjuna!
The enemy in the form of desire, hard to conquer.

SANSKRIT

Sanskrit believes that the sound of the word never gets ruined and that it has an everlasting value.

Words in Sanskrit open out from their seed (beej) form.

A root is always a single syllable that contains one of the basic sounds a, I, u, ri

The root or seed may create a word, yet the word will vibrate to its best, and gives it tremendous power.

The Vedic or the Sanskrit view gives more importance to the special sound it should produce, than to the meaning of the spoken word.
