Hare Krishna Friends,
Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized
tani sarvani samyamya yukta asita mat-parah vase hi yasyendriyani tasya prajna pratisthita
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.
One who restrains his senses and fixes his consciousness upon Me, is known as a man of steady intelligence.
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.
