Mutinous senses ravish even discerning and active minds,
and undo their steadiness.
So with full control over his senses,
equipped with yog and devotion,
seeker should find shelter in God,
for that man alone has a firm mind who has subdued his senses.
Restraint and prohibition alone cannot subdue the senses.
Along with negation of senses there must also be
incessant contemplation of the desired God.
In the absence of such reflection,
the mind will be preoccupied with material objects.
