Radhanath Swami on Perceiving Through Mind

Radhanath Swami on Perceiving Through Mind When the mind is turbulent, uncontrolled and restless, it is like a pond of water that is filled with mud. Therefore when we look within ourselves, all we perceive is the mud of our material conceptions of life. But when the mind is still through discipline, and through yoga, it is like a pond that has no waves and no turbulence. Then we can perceive through that crystal clear water the eternal nature of our soul.

– Radhanath Swami

    Rain drops before reaching the earth is in its pure form, but as soon as it touches the earth it becomes muddy. Similarly the soul is pure by nature, but when it comes in contact with the three modes of nature it becomes contaminated. By yoga practice one can overcome the impurities and begin to see one’s true self.
    Thank you Maharaja

  • jayant mahtani

    By suitable practice and detachment it is possible to curb the restless mind. Yoga practice without mental control is a waste of time.
    Thank you Maharaja.
