मनो नाम महाव्याघ्रो विषयारण्य भूमिषु |
चरत्यत्र न गच्छन्तु साधवो ये मुमुक्षव: ||

The mind is like a big tiger roaming in the forest of
sense objects .Those who have a longing for liberation
should be very alert and not go there.

– Vivekachudamani .

( From the book Gita Darshanam , printed by

परिग्रहो हि दु :खाय यद् यत् प्रियतमं नृणां |
अनन्तं सुखमाप्नोति तद् विद्वान् यस्त्वकिञ्चन : ||

The more a sense object is considered desirable and sought after
by men , the more it is a source of sorrow and suffering for them.
A man who knows this and owns nothing (including his body and
his sense of identification with it ) attains to infinite joy.

– Srimad Bhagavata.

Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence, Hyderabad.)
