o EKNATH EASWARAN -"During the early stages of the spiritual journey, we can feel a certain deprivation when we have to keep saying 'no to the senses as they clamour for things that will only add to the burden of the journey later on. Don't eat this. Don't drink that. Don't smoke. Don't watch that. This is what you keep hearing from your spiritual teacher. There is no rapture; no ecstasy only dos and don'ts. Discriminatory restraint of senses is not asceticism. The purpose is not to subjugate the body We need to rein the senses to be faithful allies on our journey for two compelling reasons: first, the body is our vehicle, and we need to keep it healthy strong and resilient so that it can carry us steadily and safely to the summit of consciousness. Second, training the senses strengthens the will. A strong will is required to move out of the Valley of Death which is our physical world. An untrained will becomes self-will, an enemy But a trained will is a powerful ally"
