Control thy sense at the outset before it overwhelms you – Bhagavad Gita



Control thy sense at the outset, and slay this sinful destroyer of jnana and vijnana.

Whatever you eat, whatever you give in charity, whatever austerity you practice, whatever you do, O Arjuna, make it as an offering unto me.

A man with a disciplined mind, who moves among sense objects, with the senses under control and free from attachment and aversion, he rises to a state of peace…having attained peace, there is for him an end of all sorrow; of such a man of peace the understanding soon attains equilibrium.

You are birthless and deathless. Weapons cannot cleave you, fire cannot burn you, waters cannot wet you, nor winds dry you. You are immutable, eternal, all pervading, beyond time and space.
– Bhagavad Gita
