Bhagavad Gita

ಇಂದ್ರಿಯಾಣಿ ಪರಾಣ್ಯಾಹುರಿಂದ್ರಿಯೇಭ್ಯಃ ಪರಂ ಮನಃ ।
ಮನಸಸ್ತು ಪರಾ ಬುದ್ಧಿರ್ಯೋ ಬುದ್ಧೇಃ ಪರತಸ್ತು ಸಃ ॥೪೨॥
iṃdriyāṇi parāṇyāhuriṃdriyebhyaḥ paraṃ manaḥ |
manasastu parā buddhiryo buddheḥ paratastu saḥ ||42||

Gist of the sloka:
Senses [indriyas] are great residences [than gross body]. The demi-Gods [indriyas abhimana devatas] who control the senses are greater than the senses themselves. For all the senses mind [manasu – Lord Shiva is supreme over mind among all the demi-Gods present there] is in a greater position. Intellect [controlled by Saraswathi/Bharathi] is greater than mind. One beyond intellect is Paramatma [Lord Krishna who is beyond all].
While there are series of devils to takes us on wrong path, there are demi-Gods too who are with us protecting and to take us in the right path. For each of the senses there is a demi-God responsible for it. The superior indriyas demi-God is Indira. For the mind, its Shiva-Parvathi. For intellect, its Saraswathi and over everyone is Lord Krishna.
We should surrender to the demi-Gods who supervise the senses to intellect and to the supreme Lord. With their help, we shall be able to obtain the right knowledge and reach the Lord. For example, some of the demi-Gods are: eye - Sun God, for ear –moon, for mouth - fire/agni, tongue is varuna [water], nose – Ashwini devatas, hands – Indra [he is also the overall Lord over senses], foot – Indira’s son Upendra, Yama – excretory organs, Daksha – procreation organ. Like this, these demi-Gods can help us to escape from the clutches of the enemy. We should therefore pray to these demi-Gods and the Lord Krishna and with their help escape from the evils. We can then reach Lord Krishna. This helps in controlling senses and to divert energy towards the Lord.
