Going out of Control

“The senses, they can any time go out of our control. That’s why, to purify the senses is essential. If we engage the senses… all the senses in the devotional activities. If we engage the sense – Not stop eating no. Eat, Feast! But first offer the food according to the Vedic system, offer to the Lord as a naivedyam, take yajna-sista take the prasada. Then by eating that food, your senses are not stopping work, but they’re actually not creating any karmas. They are rather being freed from karma.”
