Three doors of darkness leading to hell

Lord clearly mentions the pathways that takes to darkness of hell. (The culmination of Asuri Sampada!)

त्रिविधं नरकस्येदं द्वारं नाशनमात्मनः।
कामः क्रोधस्तथा लोभस्तस्मादेतत्त्रयं त्यजेत्।।16.21।।

एतैर्विमुक्तः कौन्तेय तमोद्वारैस्त्रिभिर्नरः।
आचरत्यात्मनः श्रेयस्ततो याति परां गतिम्।।16.22।।

Three types of gates to hell that are sure to destroy the self. They are
kaamah (passion or lust)
krodhah (anger) and
lobhah (greed).

Abandoning them and freed from these gates of darkness (tamodvara), one can practice the “Sreyo marga” (of yoga vedanta) and gets on to the path that leads to ultimate goal – “paraam gati”.
