When the Mind Constantly Runs

When the mind constantly runs
after the wandering senses,
it drives away wisdom, like the wind
blowing a ship off course.

And so, Arjuna, when someone
is able to withdraw his senses
from every object of sensation,
that man is a man of firm wisdom.

Bhagavad Gita: A New Translation


  1. It’s hard to stay steady amongst all of the chaos. Escpecially in Metropolitan areas. There are a lot of distractions, but with the help of our minds and Manduka mats…it makes things much easier!
