KATHOPANISHAD

The body is like a chariot to which the senses are yoked like horses. The mind is like the reins, which enable the charioteer, viz., the understanding, to hold the horses, i.e., the senses, in check. Th-e Soul rides on the chariot, and the road is the world of objects over which the senses move. If the reins are not held firmly and wisely, senses, like vicious horses, will get out of control, and the chariot will not reach the goal, but will go round and round in, births and re-births.

If the man is wise, and controls his mind, his senses will be like good horses driven by a good driver.

(3)-3,4,5,9

The self-existent Spirit worked its way out from within and thus the openings of the mind are directed outwards, viz., the sense Organs. Therefore do men’s thoughts ever tend outwards.
