II: 60

Chapter 2, Verse 60

“The restless violence of the senses
Impetuously carries away the mind
Even of the advanced
Who are striving for wholeness.”

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi:

“Here Krishna describes to Arjuna the nature of the senses. Being the instruments which enable the mind to enjoy the glory of the diversity of creation, they are bound to draw it towards objects of pleasure. Their main purpose is to bring the greatest possible enjoyment to the mind. And this they will continue to do as long as the mind has not learned how to withdraw them inwards so that it may become established in the peace and joy of silence.”
