42. Strongly desiring sensual delectation is as lethal as a suicidal terrorist.
Desire weighs down each segment of your soul with the dynamite of karmas.
When the bomb of sensual desire explodes, you will not be able to show your face anywhere.
You will be shattered.
There is only way to save yourself. Give up your obsession with sensual pleasure.
