I try to control it, but I am not succeeding to a
degree of satisfaction. The progress I make is not as good as it ought to be.
You ought to have put forth more efforts if you wanted quick progress! Do more of Japa,
concentration and meditation. Increase your Vairagya and Abhyasa. At night have Satsang and
Kirtan. Do not feel depressed; in due course of time you will make substantial progress. Go on
doing little by little.
