The atoms of delusion keep spreading their net.
One such net is desire, ambition.
It influences the senses.
The thus influenced senses distort the subject under consideration.

A person who seeks to control his senses resolves:
I will see with my eyes, but not in­fluence my sight with emotional attachment.
This resolve saves the subject from getting distorted.
If the sight is leading towards dis­tortion then I will close my eyes and look inwards.
This resolve will in some time, control the senses.
The Indriya Vijay Pranay­ama is also a useful tool to help control the senses.
