One who has restrained the senses from their objects is firmly established in wisdom.
He is full with contentment who absorbs all desires within, as the brimful ocean remains unmoved by waters entering into it
For those who have conquered the mind, the mind is their friend. For those who have failed to do so, the mind acts like an enemy.
The man of self-control, roaming among material objects with subjugated senses, and devoid of attraction and repulsion, attains an unshakable inner calmness
The ideas of heat & cold, pleasure & pain, are produced by the contact of the senses with their objects. Such ideas are limited by a beginning & an end, they are transitory, bear them with patience
He who is undisturbed by anxiety under afflictions, nor attached to happiness under favorable circumstances; he who is free from worldly loves, fears & anger- is called a sage of steady wisdom
