Feelings such as happiness, sadness, fear, anger, desperation, hatred, etc are states of mind. You are happy or sad only when you think of whatever it is that gives you those feelings. It is the way you perceive different situations that cause the different states of mind. The fear of losing what or who one is attached to leads people to take the wrong decisions which can have serious repercussions and cause irreversible damages in one's life. Attachment and the fear of losing can make people losers.
The Srimad Bhagavad Gita, one of the most important scriptures revered by the followers of the Sanatana Dharma aka Hinduism, is a transcript of the dialogue between Shri Bhagavan Krishna and Arjuna at the battlefield of Kurukshetra, as reported to king Dhritarashtra by his charioteer Sanjaya. The scripture begins with the chapter that talks about the feelings of despondency, weakness and confusion that took over Arjuna's intellect. The despondent state of mind of the valiant, intelligent and knowledgeable warrior king Arjuna was about to turn him into a coward, destroy his perspicacity and drive him towards delusion, failure, defeat and ignominy. However, Arjuna took a wise decision.
