21. Jealousy And Its Modifications  : 1.

Jealousy is a form of continuous anger.

Irshya is a form of jealousy.

It is a form of hatred.

Blaming, accusing, mocking, ridiculing, unjust criticism, censure, caviling, vilifying, tale-bearing, backbiting, scandal mongering, faultfinding, complaining-all proceed from jealousy, either subtle or gross, a hatred of various sorts.

They all indicate lack of proper mental culture and meanness of the person.

They should be removed.

18. Darpa, 19. Dambha, 20. falsehood, cheating, avarice and Trishna -

Darpa is vanity. It is vain display. It is vain show. The man is puffed up even though he actually does not possess anything. A man of pride actually possesses something. That is the difference between pride and vanity. Vanity is a form of exaggerated pride.

Hypocrisy (Dambha) is pretending to be what one is really not. It is feigning. It is concealment of one's true character. It is the opposite of Adambhitva of the Gita (XIII-7). A hypocrite pretends to be what he is really not, in order to extract money, honour, fame or something else from others.

Hypocrisy, falsehood, cheating, avarice and Trishna (avidity) are very closely related. They are members of one family. Hypocrisy is the offspring of avarice. Falsehood is the son of hypocrisy. Hypocrisy co-exists with falsehood. Trishna is the mother of hypocrisy. Hypocrisy cannot live even for a moment without falsehood, the son and avarice and Trishn…

4. Total Avoidance of Sex : 33 to 38.

33. An aspirant should not associate with the opposite sex or those who are fond of the opposite sex because the mind becomes agitated. When the mind becomes agitated he cannot serve his preceptor with faith and devotion.

34. Sadhana is of no avail if the disciple does not obey his Acharya.

35. The wise aspirant should avoid all sorts of bad company and should associate with the Guru and saints. Their company would make him unat…

17. Pride :

Pride is a feeling of superiority over others. It is of nine kinds:

(i) physical pride (pride of possessing great physical strength),

(ii) intellectual pride (pride of great learning),

(iii) moral pride (pride of possessing great moral virtues),

(iv) psychic pride (pride of possessing great psychic powers or Siddhis),

(v) spiritual pride,

(vi) pride of noble birth,

(vii) pride of power, wealth and other possessions,

(viii) pride of being handsome and

(ix) Rajamada (pride of sovereignty).

All these varieties of pride should be completely overcome.

Get rid of pride through Viveka. Everything is Anitya. Why are you vainly puffed up with pride?

Arrogance is a form of pride. It is undue assumption of self-importance. It is claiming too much.
