2158) Whether I know the yogis think that senses are like poisonous snakes! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————– So tri… Prabodhananda Sarasvati Maharaja says that durdanta indriya-kala-sarpa-patali-protkhata-damstrayate. The senses are our enemies. That’s all right. We also admit. The yogis try to control the senses and mind because they think of the senses just like serpent. Serpent, little touch by the lip, I mean, the tongue, immediately it causes death. So it is very dangerous. But Prabodhananda Sarasvati says that “We are not afraid of these serpents because protkhata damstrayate, the serpent is so long dangerous as long as it has got the poison teeth.” Poison teeth. Protkhata-damstrayate. So if you take away the poison teeth, then, however big serpent it may be, nobody will be afraid. ——–———————–
