In the epic Ramayana, Ravana lent his ear to the pleasant eulogies from his ministers than the beneficial advice from his brother, Vibeeshana. By exiling his brother and honouring his courtiers, he sealed his own fate. Now many people are pursuing the pleasant over the beneficial and that is the reason for all distress and discontent. Indian Culture has always emphasised the hard and beneficial way; it has always advised the control of one’s senses. However people today follow cultures that cater to the senses and go after momentary and external frills and pleasures. Realize that the car is driven by steering the wheel inside, when this is turned, the outer wheels automatically move. Similarly when you turn the inner wheel, you can progress.
