Self-control clears the mind, strengths will power and judgment. It uplifts your character. It gives you freedom, peace, bliss and joy. Will attain self-realization.
Conquer by self. Till you have done this, you are only a slave of your senses.
He who rules his passions, desires, cravings and senses is the real king of kings. Crowns are nothing for him.
Every temptation that is resisted, every evil thought that is overcome, every desire craving that is destroyed, every wrong action that is checked paves a long way to the attainment of everlasting peace and bliss.
Self-control gives you power to with stand trial, to bear suffering and to face danger.
