Conquest of Anger by Sri Swami Sivananda illustrates practical ways on how you can control your anger.
Excerpt from the book:
Anger is a negative Vritti or whirlpool in the mind-lake. It is born of ignorance.
It is a strong emotion, excited by a real or fancied injury and involving a desire for retaliation.
Anger is the natural passion or emotion of displeasure and antagonism aroused by injury or insult, real or imagined, and directed against the cause thereof. Anger arises from an idea of evil having been inflicted or threatened.
Anger is often accompanied by a desire to take vengeance, or to obtain satisfaction from the offending party.
It begins in folly and ends in repentance.
There fire you kindle for your enemy burns yourself.
