Control the Senses

The senses are your real foes. They draw you out, and disturb your peace of mind. Do not keep company with them. Subdue them. Restrain them. Curb them, just as you would curb your enemies on the battlefield. This is not the work of a day. It wants patient and protracted sadhana (practice) for a very long time. Control of the senses is really control of the mind.
