Ramana Maharshi About Mind Control
« on: March 11, 2011, 11:25:18 AM »
D.: How can the rebellious mind be brought under control?

M.: Either seek its source so that it may disappear or surrender that it may be struck down.

D.: But the mind slips away from our control.

M.: Be it so. Do not think of it. When you recollect yourself bring it back and turn it inward. That is enough.

No one succeeds without effort. Mind control is not one's birthright. The successful few owe their success to their perseverance.

Dear prasanth,

Yes. Mind has no form, but are only thoughts.  These thoughts control, as Sri Bhagavan said, would be successful only after a lot of efforts. One way is to find the Source.  Another way is to control the thoughts through a single thought, like a mantra.

Arunachala Siva.
