When fire rages you try to put it out by throwing sand or water, and you keep a stock of these in readiness. But, you have six fires raging inside you, lust, anger, greed, attachment, pride and hatred. What have you in store to put them out? Have ready, Truth, peace, righteousness and love. They will help you to scorch the flames; they are effective extinguishers.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
