The greatest impediment in the path is the unregulated action of the senses which have gone out of control. For this, the method of suppression or strangulation hitherto advised under older systems are not of much avail. Really it is not suppression or strangulation that solves our difficulties but the proper regulation of their actions. The Sahaj Marg does not advise those cruder methods which are hardly practicable in the routine life of man.
