(Kadamba Kanana Swami, March 2011)
By gradually being firm with the senses, they become weaker. Some people have spoilt senses which are just like spoilt children. Every time they cry, they get what they want, and then they cry more, just like spoilt children! So the senses are like children, and if we spoil them, they cry. Sooner or later, we have to be a little firm with our senses, its inevitable. If you just treat them to whatever they want then it is difficult!
