SRIMAD BHAGAVADGITA

 
 

Supreme Peace is attained through placidity of mind

 

 

Turbulent by nature the senses, even of a wise man that is practicing self-control, forcibly carry away his mind. The man dwelling on sense-objects develops attachment for them; from attachment springs up desire, and from desire (unfulfilled) ensues up anger. From anger arises infatuation; from infatuation, confusion of memory, from confusion of memory, loss of reason and from loss of reason one goes to complete ruin. But the self-controlled person, while enjoying the various sense-objects through his senses, which are disciplined and free from likes and dislikes, attains placidity of mind. With the attainment of such placidity of mind, all his sorrows come to an end; and the intellect of such a person of tranquil mind soon withdrawing itself from all sides, becomes firmly established in God. He who has not controlled his mind and senses can have no reason; nor can such an undisciplined man think of God. The unthinking man can have no peace; and how can there be happiness for one lacking peace of mind? As the wind carries away a boat upon the waters, even so of the senses moving among the sense-objects, the one to which the mind is joined takes away his prudence. As the waters of different rivers enter the ocean; which though full of all sides remains undisturbed, likewise he in whom all enjoyments merge themselves attains peace; not he who hankers after such enjoyments. He who has given up all desires and moves free from attachment, egoism and thirst for enjoyment attains peace.
