Bhagavad Gita sings:
शक्नोतीहैव यः सोढुं प्राक्शरीरविमोक्षणात् ।
कामक्रोधोद्भवं वेगं स युक्तः स सुखी नरः ॥
śaknotī’hai’va yaḥ soḍhum
sa yuktaḥ sa sukhī naraḥ
“That man in this world is a true and blessed yogi who,
even before the death of his mortal body,
acquires the ability to withstand the onslaughts
passion and anger, and conquers them for ever.”
He is the real man (nara=na+raman)-one who is not given to physical dalliance.
Even while he is living in the mortal body,
he is capable of facing the fierce urges of passion and anger, and
of destroying them.
He has achieved selfless action in the world and he is happy.
He has won the happiness of identity with God in which
there is no grief.
According to divine ordinance, this happiness is acquired in this mortal, worldly life itself and not after the death of the physical body.
This is what Sant Kabir,an enlightened sage from India,
intends to convey when he counsels his disciples to place their hope in this life.
The assurance that salvation comes after death is false and given only by unworthy and selfish teachers. Sri Krishn also says that the man who succeeds in overcoming his passion and anger in this life itself is the doer of selfless action in this world, and he is blessed with everlasting happiness.
Passion and anger, attraction and repulsion, desire
the touching of objects by the senses,
our mortal enemies
whom we have to vanquish and destroy.
