gajanan mishra (3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)
Control of the mind
Control your mind
My dear from distractions
And concentrate on the point
Where it should be concentrated.
Control your senses
My dear from external objects
And employ them on those fields
Where they should be employed.
Control your body
My dear and endure hardships
While discharging your duties
With purity of mind and intellect.
Control yourself and forgive all
My dear even though you are insulted
You are hurt you are pained
Forgive and forget are heaven's gate.
Be upright be simple O my dear
Without having any crookedness fraud
And knavery in your mind and be with
True knowledge what to be done and what not.
