Conquest Of Internal Nature - Important Teaching In Hinduism

The Yogi believes in the conquest of internal nature. ‘How much have you gained towards that? How much control over your senses, over your body?’ — that is all the Yogi asks. The Yoga doctrine teaches that there is the soul, and inside this soul is all power. It is already there, and if we can master this body, all the power will be unfolded. The Yogi says, religion is practical if you know first why misery exists. All the misery in the world is in the senses. The same fire that cooks your meal burns the child. Is it the fault of the fire? Blessed be the fire! Where can you lay the blame? Not on the elements. Circumstances can never be good or bad. Only the individual man can be good or bad. It is the touch of the senses that cause pleasure and pain, heat and cold. If we can control the senses and order what they shall feel — not let them order us about as they are doing now — if they can obey our commands, become our servants, the problem is solved at once. We are bound by the sen
