Krishna is owner of Senses, Engage Them In His Service- HG RSP Speaks

Every individual in this world wants to get unlimited enjoyment and happiness and zero suffering, but people get exactly the opposite, i.e. unlimited suffering and no enjoyment, as said by Avadhuta Brahman in Srimad Bhagavatam. So in first place we have to know that the senses do not belong to us, they belong to Krishna.

Srila Prabhupada was once sitting on a loft, he said, "This loft belongs to the owner of the house from whom ISKCON has hired. The moment I think that this is my loft and that I need not pay the rent, then the trouble starts. Then we'll be driven out of the place. Similarly the moment you think that the senses belong to you, immediately you'll become go-dasa i.e. servant of the senses and then they'll torture you, exploit you and make you suffer. But if the senses are engaged in Krishna's service, one will become calm, peaceful and happy, as it is mentioned hrisikena hrisikesa sevanam..."

 So this is the message of Srimad Bhagavatam that learning to use all the senses in the service of Krishna is the only path to rise above the business of sense gratification.
