Sathya Sai Baba

To understand your true nature, do three things: Bend the body, mend the senses, and end the mind. The first step is to ‘bend the body’. That means you should not allow ego to develop within your body. Cultivate humility and do your duties sincerely. ‘Mend the senses’ calls for examining how senses behave, whether they are tending to go astray, and correcting and restraining them when necessary. ‘End the mind’ calls for quietening vagaries of the mind. How is this to be done? It is by turning the mind in a different direction. For example, there is a lock and key. When the key is turned towards the left, the lock gets locked. If the key is turned towards the right the lock is opened. Thus, the key performs both functions of locking and unlocking. In man, the heart is the lock. Mind is the key. When the mind is turned Godward, the heart develops detachment. When the mind is turned towards the world, the heart develops attachment. Thus, both detachment and attachment result from the way the mind functions!

- Divine Discourse, May 06, 1988.

It is when the mind is transformed and brought under the control of the Atma (soul) that the body experiences Ananda (Divine Bliss). - Baba
