5.6.2 Sri Suka said: What you say is true in a way. But though the mind has been controlled, it cannot be trusted too much. The best of Yogis do not do so, knowing its fickleness and untrustworthiness, just as a determined hunter would not trust a captured animal with any freedom.
5.6.3 So it is said: Do not compromise with the fickle mind. For, by doing so, even very powerful personages have lost all their spiritual powers.
5.6.4 A Yogi who trusts his mind too much is like a husband who does so in regard to an unfaithful wife. The fickle mind might betray him into the hands of his enemies like lust and its allies, just as the faithless wife might betray her husband by colluding with a lover.
5.6.5 Can any man of true discrimination put full trust in the mind in the belief that it has come under his control—the mind which is the root cause of all dangerous passions like lust, anger, pride, greed, sorrow, infatuation, fear, and the bondage of Karma?
