If one wants to control the vices, then 5 things are essential:
1) Recognition of faults within us: Recognition that we have anger, selfishness (swarth), greediness (lobh), fear (dar), jealousy (irshya), vaasna (lust), and ego (ahankara).
2) Acceptance of faults within us: After recognition of faults within us, it is essential to accept them. A person may know that anger is his problem, but he has to accept that he needs to work on that.
3) Look for solution of the faults: Efforts are then needed to try and abolish the faults. A person with anger may take anger management classes etc. Thus, look for solutions as far as possible.
4) Prayer: Once a person gets tired that solution is not possible by himself, he will start praying to God that change me. He will pray that, show me the path so that ‘I’ can change myself. But still even in that prayer importance of ‘I’ is too much. He wants solution on which he can work.
5) Samarpan: Finally, realization occurs that solution is not in his hands and then finally he submits himself completely to God that take me within you, and you take care of everything.
