If the mind troubles?

Nama Article 21st January 2008

Swami Sivananda


"My Lord, how to control the senses?"  


The Master replied, "If the tongue wishes to taste sweetmeats, take only ordinary food. If the eyes wish to see cinema pictures, refrain from visiting the cinema. See Krishna only everywhere. If the organ of speech troubles you, observe silence."  


"If the mind troubles?"


The Master replied, "If the mind troubles, meditate on the Lord. Do Japa. You can control all the senses by fixing the mind on the Lord." 


Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan  :


Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
