AN 9.64  Nivarana Sutta

This Sutta was taught to recognize the five things that distract our mind and find peace and happiness by dealing them with a confident mind-objects

“Monks, there are these five hindrances. Which five? Sensual desire as a hindrance, ill will as a hindrance, sloth & drowsiness as a hindrance, restlessness & anxiety as a hindrance, and doubts as a hindrance. These are the five hindrances.

AN 9.64 Nivarana Sutta

Lot of people do not know that their happiness is taken away by the five hindrances, therefore people end up developing them without recognizing the real cause for suffering and will put the blame on others for the suffering that you experience.

And also, to control the lustful thoughts in the mind, practice Asubha meditation.
