Q.

Srimad Bhagwad Geeta says "All the five vices i.e, sex,arrogance,greed, attachment and ego are the doors of hell". Even then a majority of people are indulged in it. They are like Kalidas who once was cutting the same tree trunk on which he was sitting.why majority of us are doing so? Are we so mean ? why? can't we overcome these vices?

Tags: sex, majority, attachment

read this article.
Holistic healing or drugless healing from
kumrao99@yahoo.co.in
holistic healing means the treatment method followed
by holy people in olden days.
This method cures all diseases,except some difficult
diseases.
The food items mentioned here will cause more
disease,
if a person with diseae takes them. you think that
milk products and nonveg gives good strength and can
be taken. they give strength to the disease. a person
with disease should fast for one or two days in a
week. As people nowadays have no time,i am suggesting
this method.this is semi-fasting.Placing restrictions
on your food will give spiritual strength and lessen
the impact of sins.
1.daily take 400gms of uncooked cucumber or 300gms of
black grapes with outer layer also. Outer layer works
as fibre material which is good for bowel movement.
Take daily 3 betel leaves or 6palak leaves
uncooked.They supply you sun's energy in the form of
chlorophyll.
when betel leaves are taken, ulcer ...more

Too much involvement in these six things lead towards the door of hell. But whatever is necessary we have all of them in our life. There is always two sides of samething, one leads to dark and one leads to light. We always remained same place, thinking which way is correct or incorrect. Most people choose incorrect way to make this journey of life. Some people choose the right path and overcome from anything.

The reason and explanationis very simple. They do not follow the scriptures.
Everone is not a Hindu and every Hindu does not read the Geeta and those who read it, majority do not comprehend the meaning.
Jai shree Krishna !

We are totally governed by our Vasanas ( impressions left over in us after the actions) which lead us to our own activities in the ways of our likes & dislikes. In these ego plays an important role. The solution is to exhaust the existing vasanas andot creating any new Vasanas. Desires are the main cause; control the unwanted desires and u can find a solution to these.
