To reach the Divine within, you must qualify yourself to pass through the four gates of self-control (Shama), self-enquiry (Vicharana), contentment (Trupti) and the company of the pious and virtuous (Satsanga). Shama calls for steadfast faith in the Lord and control of your senses and the mind. When you succeed in controlling the cognitive senses (Jnanendriyas), it becomes much easy to control the organs of action (Karmendriyas). Shama makes one a master of the mind and indriyas (sense and action organs). Such a person transcends the animal nature and can go forward from the human to the Divine. Birds, beasts and other creatures are concerned with the enjoyment of external things. Man alone is gifted with the capacity to discriminate between the transient and the permanent, and seek what is everlasting by controlling the senses and giving up attachment to the perishable body and the ephemeral objects of the phenomenal world.
