    The talk as a whole makes a lot of sense although 'restrain' the mind is a poor word to use. You can't really redefine such a word and expect people to use it 'properly'. It is far too embedded in our language and culture. Better to use something else. Restraint is certainly part of the process when used as he suggests, but I prefer 're-train' the mind in the sense of the Zen Ox-Herding parable.
