Chapter 16 -- Verse 21-22

Verse: 

trividhaṃ narakasyedaṃ dvāraṃ nāśanamātmanaḥ | 
kāmaḥ krodhastathā lobhastasmādetattrayaṃ tyajet ||

etairvimuktaḥ kaunteya tamodvāraistribhirnaraḥ |
ācaratyātmanaḥ śreyastato yāti parāṃ gatim ||

त्रिविधं नरकस्येदं द्वारं नाशनमात्मनः ।

कामः क्रोधस्तथा लोभस्तस्मादेतत्त्रयं त्यजेत् ॥

एतैर्विमुक्तः कौन्तेय तमोद्वारैस्त्रिभिर्नरः ।
आचरत्यात्मनः श्रेयस्ततो याति परां गतिम् ॥

Translation: These three are the gates of hell, destructive of the Self --- lust, anger and greed; therefore, one should abandon these three. A man who is liberated from these three gates to darkness, O Kaunteya, practises what is good for him and thus goes to the Supreme Goal.
