Mind is the man, as the mind so the individual. If the mind is disturbed, the individual is disturbed. If the mind is good, the individual is good. This mind, for purposes of our study and understanding, may be considered as constituted of two distinct sides. One facing the world of stimuli that reach it from the objects of the world, and the other facing the ‘within’ which reacts to the stimuli thus received. The outer mind facing the object is called the ‘objective mind’ (manah), and the inner mind is called the ‘subjective mind’ (buddhi).

4. Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsa

One should constantly remember death. Nothing will survive death. We are born into this world to perform certain duties, like the people who come from the countryside to Calcutta on business. If a visitor goes to a rich man's garden, the superintendent says to him, 'This is our garden', 'This is our lake', and so forth. But if the Superintendent is dismissed for some misdeed, he can't carry away even his mango-wood chest. He sends it secretly by the gate-keeper.

Yes. It will be so.
 All that is inside will try to come out.
There is no other way except
 to pull up the mind
 each time it wants to go astray
 and to fix it on the Self.
Bhagavan quoted the verse
 in the Bhagavad Gita
 which says
 that as often as the wavering mind
 goes after anything,
 it should be drawn away
 and fixed in the Self.

For a beginner in the spiritual path, a Guru is necessary. To light a candle, you need a burning candle. Even so, an illumined soul alone can enlighten another soul. Some do meditation for some years independently. Later on, they actually feel the necessity of a Guru, They come across some obstacles in the way. They are unable to know how to obviate these impediments or stumbling blocks. Then they begin to search for a Master.

People are not ruled by power but their hearts are filled with love to get their love and respect in return. And that happens by keeping the other ahead of you in interactions not only on a physical level but also on a thought level .
