2. Kill Fear and Anger
Never give anyone or anything the power to control the state of your mind.
न प्रहृष्येत्प्रियं प्राप्य नोद्विजेत्प्राप्य चाप्रियम् |

na prah-rshyet-priyam praapya
brahmavid brahmaNi sthitaha (SBG 5:20)
A person with a clear understanding of the Supreme Brahman has a detached and stable intellect. Such a person neither takes pleasure in receiving something pleasant nor does he grieve on receiving something unpleasant. He is always situated in the transcendent state of Brahman. (SBG 5:20)
