Controlling the Five Senses in Yoga #7
It is not only Mother India that has taught that success in both earthly life, and spiritual life as well, is based early on upon the individual’s ability to control the five senses. But certainly no system in existence goes to such lengths and offers so much aid towards success in this substantial feat as Yoga. As the aspiring seeker after self-contol will find, spiritual doorways never encountered before will open up for the yogic practitioner to reveal the need for connections between the five elements, the five senses, and the five kinds of prana. This is the very basis of Yoga, and its basics too. The higher limbs of concentration, meditation, and samadhi await after such primal fusion is attained.
