Controlling Your Mind is the Most Difficult Task in the World

The wisdom from the Spirit Realm comes to us from many sources and times:

Quote from Wikipedia about the Poet Thayumanavar:

Thayumanavar or Tayumanavar, Tamil: தாயுமானவர் Tāyumānavar (1705–1744), was a Tamil spiritual philosopher from Tamil NaduIndia. Thayumanavar articulated the Saiva Siddhanta philosophy. He wrote several Tamil hymns of which 1454 are available. His first four songs were sung 250 years ago at the Congress of Religions in Tiruchirappalli. His poems follow his own mystical experience, but they also outline the philosophy of South Indian Hinduism, and the Tirumandiram by Saint Tirumular in its highest form, one that is at once devotional and nondual, one that sees God as both immanent and transcendent.

Thayumanavar’s key teaching is to discipline the mind, control desires and meditate peacefully. He went on to say that “it is easy to control an elephant, catch hold of the tiger’s tail, grab the snake and dance, dictate the angels, transmigrate into another body, walk on water or sit on the sea; but it is more difficult to control the mind and remain quiet”. (accessed on April 15, 2021 – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thayumanavar )

I read his poem in full in the book in PDF – Autobiography of a Yogi (p.420):

“The ubiquitous religious shrines of Mysore are a constant reminder of the many great saints of South India. One of these masters, Thayumanavar, has left us the following challenging poem:

You can control a mad elephant;

You can shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;

You can ride a lion;

You can play with the cobra;

By alchemy you can eke out your livelihood;

You can wander through the universe incognito;

You can make vassals of the gods;

You can be ever youthful;

You can walk on water and live in fire;

But control of the mind is better and more difficult.”
