In Yogavasishta,Lord Rama speaks at length about the fickleness,turbulence & restlessness of the mind.Because of its fickle & wayward nature,human mind is often compared to a monkey,a street dog,ghost & pendulum.In the Gita,in various places including the second chapter,Lord Krishna speaks about the restless nature of the mind & the senses & the need to control them.He tells Arjuna:’There’s no doubt that the mind is turbulent & difficult to control; only by contant practice of meditation & by dispassion,this control can be achieved’ (Gita 6-35)
