Message for the Day…”Your heart is the lock and mind is the key. When you turn the mind towards God, it develops detachment. When the mind is turned towards the world, it develops attachment. Hence turn your mind towards God and dedicate every action of yours to Him.”

If you wish to understand your true nature, you have to do three things: Bend the body, mend the senses, and end the mind. ‘Bend the Body’ means you should not allow the ego to develop within your body. Cultivate humility and do your duties sincerely. ‘Mend the Senses’ requires you to examine how the senses behave and correcting them when they tend to go astray as well as restraining them when necessary. ‘End the Mind’ requires you to quieten the vagaries of the mind by turning it to a different direction. For example, there is a lock and key. When you turn the key to the left, it locks and when you turn right, it opens. Similarly, your heart is the lock and mind is the key. When you turn the mind towards God, it develops detachment. When the mind is turned towards the world, it develops attachment. Hence turn your mind towards God and dedicate every action of yours to Him.
