Thayumanavar one of the great saints of Southern India has left the following challenging poem:

You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
You may ride a lion;
You may play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may eke your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
You may make vassals of the gods;
You may be ever youthful;
You may walk on water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult.
Autobiography of a Yogi
