The Precarious Condition the Living Entity

The Charriot of Body diorama Bhagavad-gita museum

Here we see the precarious condition of the embodied soul. The Bhagavad-gita gives us this illustration to help us understand in more detail the relationship between the body and the soul. The horses are the senses—sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. The reins are the mind. The driver is the intelligence and the passenger is the soul. In most cases the soul does not control the intelligence which in turn becomes bewildered and cannot firmly guide the mind. The mind, like the slackened reins, does not control the senses which become wild. This is happening to us every day when the senses are irresistibly drawn to the sense objects. Thus the soul is forced into dangerous and unpredictable states of consciousness
