The Uncontrolled Senses

There are all types of desire . It is not that once you decide to enjoy material things, it’s not that it is just one thing– it is everything ; so many types of thing . It is not that that you just want a car : you need a color TV , a house , you need a little land , you need a swimming pool, you need a– it just goes on and there is never end , if the senses are uncontrolled. If the senses are controlled , well, then one can be satisfied even with the very simple bed . But how does one control the senses ? The senses are only able to be controlled if one is in pure devotional service because then, one is basically peaceful ;they can be satisfied with a small amount of material possessions.
