The Psychology of Cognition
The senses are the channels through which we come into contact with the external world. But they are not merely the avenues through which we derive information as to what takes place in the outer world; they are also the avenues through which man’s desires and passions may be excited. It is by the control of the sense organs (indriyasarhhvritageara) that a person can master his desires. When a person is able to control his sense organs, he will remain unaffected by sensory stimuli and indifferent to them, whether they be pleasant or unpleasant.1
