Spiritual advancement without mind control is simply an illusion .
– Radhanath Swami
Yea… really amazing.
This wisdom from HH Radhanath swami stresses the importance of Mind Control. There are few spiritual practitioners who call themselves religious persons but have not even a slight endeavor to control the mind from engaging in degrading activities that may not lead to very useful spiritual advancement. Controlling and engaging the mind in positive and constructive activities is the process of spiritual advancement.
Yes engagement of the Mind in positive activities will deflect it from negative distractions
Thanks Radhanath Maharaj for emphasizing the importance of mind control in our life.
One needs to control ones mind to follow the path of spirituality…
This point is worth contemplating! Sometimes we may think that we focus on externals of spirituality without understanding that the base principle is Mind Control
So true. At times we become too mechanical forgetting the real purpose.
Mind control — Simple self assessment parameter for knowing our advancement in spiritual life….! Quickly exposes our shortcomings…..! Thank you Maharaj. this helps.
Thank you for enlightening us.
