      Hare Krishna Friends,
      Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized


                                                                      TEXT 62


                                                      dhyayato visayan pumsah
                                                          sangas tesupajayate
                                                      sangat sanjayate kamah
                                                      kamat krodho 'bhijayate


      dhyayatah--while contemplating; visayan--sense objects; pumsah--of the person; sangah--attachment; tesu--in the sense objects; upajayate--
      develops; sangat--attachment; sanjayate--develops; kamah--desire; kamat--from desire; krodhah--anger; abhijayate--becomes manifest.


      While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from
      lust anger arises.


      One who is not Krsna conscious is subjected to material desires while contemplating the objects of the senses. The senses require real
      engagements, and if they are not engaged in the transcendental loving service of the Lord, they will certainly seek engagement in the service
      of materialism. In the material world everyone, including Lord Siva and Lord Brahma--to say nothing of other demigods in the heavenly planets--
      is subjected to the influence of sense objects, and the only method to get out of this puzzle of material existence is to become Krsna

      Lord Siva was deep in meditation, but when Parvati agitated him for sense pleasure, he agreed to the proposal, and as a result
      Kartikeya was born. When Haridasa Thakura was a young devotee of the Lord, he was similarly allured by the incarnation of Maya-devi, but
      Haridasa easily passed the test because of his unalloyed devotion to Lord Krsna. As illustrated in the above-mentioned verse of Sri
      Yamunacarya, a sincere devotee of the Lord shuns all material sense enjoyment due to his higher taste for spiritual enjoyment in the
      association of the Lord. That is the secret of success. One who is not, therefore, in Krsna consciousness, however powerful he may be in
      controlling the senses by artificial repression, is sure ultimately to fail, for the slightest thought of sense pleasure will agitate him to
      gratify his desires.
