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
The beginning of all beings is veiled, beings manifest in the middle, and unmanifest again on death. Then, why lament this truth?
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.
Undoubtedly the mind is fickle and unruly; but by yoga practice and by dispassion, the mind may nevertheless be controlled.
He who is not affected by pain and pleasure, he who is calm and evenminded during pain and pleasure, he alone is eligible for immortality
