      Irrespective of race, religion, sect or language the holy prophets correctly encourage the abstinence of their people from a certain set of vices or evils, and the cultivation of a certain set of virtues.  The Holy Bible correctly catalogues the following as deadly sins: Greed, Pride, Anger, Lust, Sloth, Envy and Gluttony.

      Mankind, for discussion purposes, can be classified under three broad groups - the Divinely Good, the Diabolically Fallen and the Incorrigibly Indifferent.  The first being spiritually minded, the last two materialistically minded.

      Humility, unpretentiousness, non-injurious, forgiveness, righteousness, service to one's God, purity of mind and heart, intelligence, steadfastness and control over one's senses are some of the elements of Spiritual Knowledge, which include moral qualities and holy practices conducive to spiritual awakening. 

      The qualities declared here must be followed at all layers of one's spiritual life, and at all levels of a person's interaction with his surroundings.  Notable among these is the mention of control over one's senses. 

      This specifically refers to attachment and ego.  Living among worldly objects, one must not get shackled by them.  Also, if one tries to run away from them, but then indulges in them mentally, one is a hypocrite.  If one steadfastly follows the concept of Oneness his/her mind is then open to the spiritual knowledge this world has to offer.  When one identifies himself with specific objects or events, when such practice is followed, no matter what knowledge is imparted to him, he cannot practice the absence of anger and the other deadly sins. Consequently such a person suffers moral insult within himself, and falls under the influence of non-divine qualities.  To live one's real divine nature, it is a necessary prerequisite to shed oneself of evils and the consequent anger that occurs within.  This is indeed in line with another discourse on the destruction of one's ignorance within oneself so the soul can rejoice in the presence of the truth within one's mind.
