Why we have to avoid or remain neutral-tranquil with lust,anger,greed,desire,attachment and ego?

Karmas are the derivatives of karman particles. Karman particles are
non-living matter scattered all around us and all over the universe.
They are very fine particles that cannot be seen even with a
microscope. A cluster of innumerable karman particles is called Karman
Vargana. When you act with passions like attachment, anger, greed,
ego, or deceitfulness, Karman Varganas are attracted towards your soul.
Karman Varganas that are attached to your soul are called karmas.

At the time of bondage of karmas to the soul, four characteristics of
karmas are decided. They are:

1) Prakriti (nature).
2) Pradesh (quantity).
3) Sthiti (duration).
4) Anubhag (intensity).
