How Attachment to objects affect us.

Essentially, attachment to sensory objects leads to unhappiness in two different ways. It causes suffering once one fails to attain the object they are attached to, and it causes suffering through the fact that any happiness gained through attachment is simply temporary. As soon as this happiness is gone one is left back once again in sadness. There are principles to regulate attachment and aversion pertaining to the senses and their objects. One should not come under the control of such attachment and aversion, because they are stumbling blocks on the path of self-realization.

One who restrains the senses of action but whose mind dwells on sense objects certainly deludes him and is called a pretender. On the other hand, if a sincere person tries to control the active senses by the mind and begins karma-yoga without attachment, he is by far superior.
