“You may control…


“You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;
You may walk in water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult.”
― Paramahansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi

  1. Control of the mind is something I doubt I will ever get even the slightest handle on. It is too busy and I cannot grab hold of it. 😉

  2. an amazing quote … control of the mind is so difficult, made more difficult perhaps by a desire not to get along – at least not in the traditional sense

  3. Yogi has so much wisdom. 😛
