In this modern era, we usually face the trauma between our mind and belief. To deal with them one has to connect with ‘virtues, values and morals’ and all these lead to maintain the balance of true spiritualism. A contented, stress-free and purposeful life is what everyone desire for. Since ancient ages, the mind is considered as the sixth sense and the center of all activities of the senses. When one hears about sense objects, the mind becomes cluttered with different ideas for gratification. Both the senses and the mind become affected by lust. Then, the humanity and love get affected by lusty desires. The lusty intelligence influences the soul (the real individual within the body) to acquire the false ego and identify with matter and the material senses, mind and intelligence. The soul becomes addicted to enjoying the material senses and mistakes this as true happiness.
