Anger is one of the six deterrents to self-realization (refer nama 156). It is said that any worship done with anger destroys the effect of such worship.
Krishna cites the reasons for anger (Gita II.63,64) ‘while contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment to them and from such attachment desire develops, and from desire anger develops and from anger total dissolution arises…’. That is why we have repeatedly discussed in this site about the evils of sensory organs. Krishna also says that material mode of passion is responsible for all the sufferings we undergo.
