Katha Upanishad : Mazes Of Desire

image

Know that the Self is the rider, and the body the chariot; that the intellect is the charioteer, and the mind the reins.

The senses, say the wise, are the horses; the roads they travel are the mazes of desire….

When a man lacks discrimination and his mind is uncontrolled, his senses are unmanageable, like the restive horses of a charioteer.

But when a man has discrimination and his mind is controlled, his senses, like the well-broken horses of a charioteer, lightly obey the rein.

Katha Upanishad 1.3.3-6

“This solves everything: It is either all unreal or it is all Real. If it is unreal, you can easily renounce it; you cannot own something that is unreal. If it is all Real, then that is what you are and there is nothing to renounce.”
