Those who create new obstacles they can never be rehabilitated. Alike a boat without an anchor, they end up in failure and misery.

People, who inflict pain upon others, end up in misery and in deplorable condition. Those who harass others and ostracize others can never ever think of reaching higher ideals. That is why we should think in the welfare of others and by doing so we shall become successful and prosperous.

May your mind be infused with one type of thought, may every action of yours be embellished by one-one thought, may your resolution be one. If you are isolated and work incessantly, your action shall result in another form of thought.

That is why we are encouraged to bring unison in words, deeds and thoughts. This only shall accrue in social development and national growth.

(25) YATSANYAMO NA VI YAMO YANNA SANYAMAHA |
-------------(3/7,Atharvaveda)

What is already controlled and restrained should not be suppressed, but what is not controlled and is vagrant needs to be brought under control.

One should control all the senses but if they are unnaturally controlled or rather suppressed they start reacting contradictorily. After controlling the senses, one should keep a strict vigil on them rather than suppressing them. A virtuous diet helps to control sensual desires and anger.

A mind, and the senses, which are vagrant and instable, should be strictly brought under control.

Indra in form of a bullock protects all the animals. Indra is the creator of the 3 elements and creates matter coveted to the past, present and future.

Indra in form of a bullock takes care of all, knows all the 3 paths, transverses beyond the 3 tenses and observes all the vows to be observed by gods. The 3 directions are Sat, Raj and Tamas. Indra knows which way he should go. He gives everyone, whatever he has to give, by milking the past, present and future. The vow of the sun is to give light, the vow of the water is to flow, and the vow of the air is to "dry up" These are the vows of the external gods. The internal gods stay in the body. The vow of the eyes is to see, of the ear is to hear, of the prana is to juvenate, and of the nose is to smell. All these vows can be accomplished on the basis of internal energy and divine inspiration.

Bless us with wealth along with enthusiasm and nobleness. May the enemy fear us and run away.

Enthusiasm and seniority come hand in hand. And these both fetch us wealth, wealth which is self created and accumulated. Enemies of the enthusiastic person are easily defeated.

That is why we should aspire to become great and noble. When we are enthusiastic and jealous we take a lot of interest in accomplishing our work. People who are cynical do not see that the wealth accumulated is caused by, assiduity, hard work and enthusiasm. They become jealous and do bad to themselves.
