Kathopanishad - Episode 39

Turn the senses inwards to experience the Divinity within

All the outgoing senses have to be turned inwards.
God created the senses to function in an outgoing manner. Yet, He cannot be captured by the senses. Those who run after outward distractions, finally meet their death, and get lost in repeated cycle of birth and death. The discerning one, learns to turn his gaze inwards. He does this by covering his senses to the pull of the outside world.

When one closes their eyes to the outside world, their mind, which has a habit of running outwards, turns inwards. By training our mind to listen to us, not to worry, not to fear, not to panic, not to get restless; we have won the battle of life. A trained mind can be used to do anything, including realise God.
