                                                                      TEXT 61

                 
                                 

                                                         tani sarvani samyamya
                                                          yukta asita mat-parah
                                                         vase hi yasyendriyani
                                                         tasya prajna pratisthita

                                                                   SYNONYMS

      tani--those senses; sarvani--all; samyamya--keeping under control; yuktah--being engaged; asita--being so situated; mat-parah--in relationship with Me; vase--in full subjugation; hi--certainly; yasya--one whose; indriyani--senses; tasya--his; prajna--consciousness; pratisthita--fixed.

                                                                  TRANSLATION

      One who restrains his senses and fixes his consciousness upon Me, is known as a man of steady intelligence.

                                                                      PURPORT

      That the highest conception of yoga perfection is Krsna consciousness is clearly explained in this verse. And, unless one is Krsna conscious, it is not at all possible to control the senses. As cited above, the great sage Durvasa Muni picked a quarrel with Maharaja Ambarisa, and Durvasa Muni unnecessarily became angry out of pride and therefore could not check his senses. On the other hand, the king, although not as powerful a yogi as the sage, but a devotee of the Lord, silently tolerated all the sage's injustices and thereby emerged victorious.
