Taming the Mind and Senses: The Yogi
The Trouble with the Mind
"The mind has long been dissipated by worldly things and does not easily come under sway, Arjuna. But when one perfectly controls and fully withdraws the mind from selfish cravings, one is in yoga, union with Divinity. The mind of the yogi, totally focused on the True Self, is unwavering like the steady flame of a candle in a sheltered place.
“When the mind becomes still and quiet, the Self reveals itself. At these depths one experiences the joy and peace of complete fulfillment.
