The uncontrolled senses

“Once you decide to enjoy material things, it’s not that it is just one thing – it is everything; so many types of things. It is not that you just want a car, then 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, 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.”
