The ever turbulent mind can be curbed by constant practice and by dispassion – Bhagavad Gita



The mind is turbulent, strong and obstinate. It is hard to control as the wind. But it can be curbed by constant practice and by dispassion.

He who does the work which is his duty to do, but seeks no gain from work, no reward, that man is a sanyasi and a yogi.

For the sage who wishes to attain to yoga, action is said to be the means, for the same sage, when he has attained to yoga, serenity is said to be the means.

When a man is not attached to sense objects or to actions and has renounced all egoistic purposes, then he is said to be enthroned in Yoga.

Self is the only friend of the self, the self alone is the enemy of the self.
– Bhagavad Gita
