Control of the mind

Despite the age of the body, tendencies of a person do not decrease or leave the body. They are difficult to be eliminated. Therefore, practice of meditation and chanting the name of the lord help in control of the mind. A gradual control over the mind will result in decrease of the tendencies associated with the body.

Tendencies or thoughts are difficult to gain control. Even when a person who is a few hours or minutes away from death, fails to get rid of his/her tendencies. Therefore, knowledge is required to differentiate between the truth and untruth,that which is real and unreal. With the help of our mind we have to discriminate which work has been assigned to us.
