      Hare Krishna Friends,
      Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized


                                                                    TEXT 66

                                                      nasti buddhir ayuktasya
                                                      na cayuktasya bhavana
                                                      na cabhavayatah santir
                                                      asantasya kutah sukham


      na asti--there cannot be; buddhih--transcendental intelligence; ayuktasya--of one who is not connected (with Krsna consciousness); na--
      neither; ca--and; ayuktasya--of one devoid of Krsna consciousness; bhavana--mind fixed in happiness; na--neither; ca--and; abhavayatah--
      one who is not fixed; santih--peace; asantasya--of the unpeaceful; kutah--where is; sukham--happiness.


      One who is not in transcendental consciousness can have neither a controlled mind nor steady intelligence, without which there is no
      possibility of peace. And how can there be any happiness without peace?


      Unless one is in Krsna consciousness there is no possibility of peace. So it is confirmed in the Fifth Chapter (5.29) that when one
      understands that Krsna is the only enjoyer of all the good results of sacrifice and penance, and that He is the proprietor of all universal
      manifestations, that He is the real friend of all living entities, then only can one have real peace.

      Therefore, if one is not in Krsna consciousness, there cannot be a final goal for the mind. Disturbance is due to want of an ultimate goal, and when one is certain that Krsna is the enjoyer, proprietor and friend of everyone and everything, then one can, with a steady mind, bring about peace. Therefore, one who is engaged without a relationship with Krsna is certainly always in distress and is without peace, however much he may make a show of peace and spiritual advancement in life. Krsna consciousness is a selfmanifested peaceful condition which can be achieved only in relationship with Krsna
