Plays of Mind

Dear one, realize the silly plays of mind

Through eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin

Mind loves to go outside

It will make you believe something interesting is outside of you

Dear one, realize, what appears now to be attractive,

Will give you joy for a while and leave you for sure,

Leaving you sad and with sense of loss

It may be tasty food, sweet sounds, sweet smells, beautiful sights, or sensual touch

Use wisdom when mind works through sense organs,

And you start following mind forgetting your ‘self’

Stay as self and watch the mind’s silly plays

Gradually, you will be able to watch,

Without taking part in these silly plays

Anyway, dear one, it’s your choice

Choose wisely 😊

  1. Happy to read you’re reading Bhajagovindam. I learnt it at 14 years through our Balvikas gurus and it made me thought about the illusive nature of world, but didn’t understand much at that age. Bhajagovindam helped me a lot while facing many things in life. Blissful moments ahead πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ’•
