Sings Bhagavad Gita:
As the wind drives a boat far away from its destination,
even one out of the five senses
roving amongst objects
the intellect can get hold of the man
who has not undertaken the task
spiritual quest and discipline.
Therefore incessant remembrance of God is essential.
The worshipper’s mind
should rather always be concerned
that-word, form, incarnation, or abode-
which his mind may be enabled
to be one with God.
The mind is drawn to sensual objects
when the discipline of worship is relaxed.
The man who restricts his senses
being drawn to their objects
a man of steady wisdom.
A man who has not undertaken meditation
devoid of selfless action oriented wisdom.
This impoverished man
even deficient in the feeling of devotion
to the all-pervading Spirit.
[Revered Swami Adgadanandji]
