Swamiji says …

“You must learn to develop the habit of exercising self-restraint and self- control on yourself. Begin by taking small steps on the path that you can choose of ‘giving up’… ‘sacrificing’…
‘tyaag kar ne ka’… with implicit faith and determination.”

“Believe me when I say that there is a lot of power in the simple act of ‘giving up’ something for a certain period of time…or, maybe, for ever. It is possible for each one of you to make a beginning by ‘giving up’ something or the other for a span of time decided by you. It could be a simple thing…like not eating an egg on a particular day or not making rice an integral part of your diet on another day … not performing a ritual that you observe everyday otherwise … not combing your hair the number of times that you, maybe, comb everyday … not having ‘dal’ on a certain day or avoid using lemon in the same way that you had been doing previously. When you begin doing this you will definitely feel positive energy building up within you … a certainty, serenity and calmness make home in your mind…which, otherwise, constantly clamours for gratification of every desire of yours…and thoughts … pure, clear and clean… will start taking birth in your mind. Oppressive thoughts of depression and negativity will be a thing of the past. Tell yourself that you will be in a state of ‘maun’…silence your mind and tongue…for a fixed duration of time whenever you can. Rein in your senses,inwards, to know who you are…What is the purpose of your birth ? What is the mystery of life and death?”

“These acts of ‘tyaag’ might appear to be insignificant and meaningless but they have a wealth of significance behind them. Once you make these traits a part and parcel of your life and live a life based on such principles, you will get connected with the source of divine power within you .. discover the inner strength that you are blessed with in abundance, and will be pleasantly surprised to know that it is possible for you to control and conquer your senses and you will see that … ‘ashubh kaam bhi shubh ho jaate hain’ …”

“I am sure each one of you is capable of developing these skills of self-mastery.”

    Yes we should have to self resist our senses, but it’s a very difficult and thanks to you tell us about to win over this…

  11. Yes indeed.
    Indrya nigrah increases our will power.
    A little effort is required in the beginning and it gives a lot of satisfaction immidiately thereafter.
    Ultimately we realize that the feel good factor is far superior after renunciation than after consummation.
    Jai Gurudev for educating us so effortlessly.

  12. Swamiji’s messages are profound and carry an immense power. I’ve felt the effect of renouncing small things like giving up a non-veg diet, tea etc. It somehow breaks our mental makeup, which hold us down and provides a new sense of joy and freedom. Thank you Swamiji for bringing these perals of wisdom to us. Humble and loving pranaams🌹🙏🏼🌹🙏🏼🌹🙏🏼
