Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji on Mind control
Human mind is never still. Like the flowing water it moves steadily and endlessly from one thought to another.
The mouth likes to talk, the tongue craves to taste, the eyes long to see, the legs desire to move. Every sense organ looks outward to seek pleasure.
How is mind control achieved?
The water can be controlled by arresting its flow. But this lasts only until the water is forceful enough to gush out.
Like wise, the mind flows through the sense organs. By shutting the doors of these sense organs, the mind can be brought under control, but only momentarily.
Is there an easier way?
Let the powerful rays of the sun shine on the water. Drench your senses in the enchanting form of Krishna, His stories, His glory and His Divine Name.
The mind is effortlessly controlled!
