<< Chapter 6 verse 25

Simple

yato yato niścalati
manaś cañcalam asthiram
tatas tato niyamyaitad
ātmany eva vaśaṁ nayet

‘From thence and thence to whence the fickle, unsteady mind rambles, shall it again be forced back; and placed under the power of ātma alone.’

Whithersoever the mind, by nature fickle, and refusing to stay in ātma, wanders out to cling to its cherished objects, let effort be made to withdraw it therefrom, and rested in ātma, persuading it to believe (or think) that therein is found supreme happiness.

>> Chapter 6 verse 27
