[gita-talk] How is it that the sentient Self become helpless in front of the insentient Mind ?



बहुधा पढ़ा-सुना है : क्या करें कि भगवान् में मन लग जाय?
साधक जानना चाहता है कि क्या प्रश्नकर्ता समझता है : 
मन क्या है? 
मन कहाँ रहता है? 
मन लगनेका अर्थ क्या है? 
कहा है मन जड़ है फिर चेतन न होते हुए भी वह पलमें यहाँ (बहुत पास)
और पलमें वहाँ (बहुत दूर) कैसे पहुँच जाता है?
कहा है मन जड़ है फिर ऐसा कैसे हो सकता है कि स्वयं (जो चेतन है, परमात्माका अंश है) 
मनके आगे असहाय हो जाय कि भगवान् में लगाते हैं पर लगता ही नहीं?


Studied a lot, heard a lot  :   What to do by which this mind can become engaged in God ?  Sadhak wishes to know what the questioner understands :
What is the mind ?  
Where does it reside ?   
What is the meaning of the mind becoming engaged  ?  
Though it has been said that the mind is insentient (jada),  i.e though not being sentient,  yet in a instant how does it come so very close, and in an instant goes so very far ?   
Though it has been said that the mind is insentient (jada),  then how is it possible that the 'self'  (which is sentient and an 'ansh' of Paramatma)  becomes helpless in front of the mind, that though trying to engage the mind in God,  it does not engage ?

please explain.
