Physical freedom is no freedom at all. If you are easily carried away by surging emotions, if you are under the grip of moods and passions, how can you be really happy and peaceful? Rigorous discipline and self-imposed restrictions will eventually get rid of all riotous thoughts, impulses, moods, cravings and passions and grant you the freedom of the Self.
