In yoga, raaga is the cause of chasing desires, material objects, skills or states of mind. The opposite of raaga is dvesha (aversion), and it is said that if there is raaga, there is dvesha. The two represent the state of mind bound to the cycle of birth and death.
Patanjali mentions raaga in his Yoga Sutras as one of the main kleshas causing pain and misery. Yoga teaches even-mindedness and non-attachment, which can be achieved through acceptance. The mind should seek to stop wandering from raaga to dvesha and, thereby, reach balance and liberation.
