Human mind resembles the Kurukshetra battlefield

The battlefield at Kurukshetra is the human mind.
It is always in conflict, faced with the freedom to choose without wisdom. The owner of the Chariot is the ego or jivatma. The body is the chariot, a vehicle by means of which a life of dharma or ethical living may be achieved. The intellect is the charioteer(Krishna) , and with such a person steering the course, success in any endeavour is assured. The five horses are the five sense organs.
The road ahead is littered with sense objects that the mind runs after. The mind is the reins, and when it is calm and collected, it can control and keep the sense organs from running wild and taking wrong paths…….
