Many ways to control your mind

Once, a devotee asked Sri Nannagaru: "Bhagavan has suggested the path of Self enquiry in order to control the mind. But in spite of doing Self-enquiry, my thoughts are not subsiding. They are increasing manifold."

Sri Nannagaru replied: "You are trying to cling to a single sentence of Bhagavan and declaring that you are unable to control your mind. Self-enquiry too facilitates the destruction of the mind. However, Lord Krishna narrated several means of destroying the mind in the Gita. Even if one possesses complete faith in the Lord or chants his name or performs Japa or meditation, or surrenders himself to the feet of the Lord, the mind gets destroyed. Adopt the method that suits you the best and try to wipe out your mind."
