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

                                   
                                                    


                                                                    TEXT 68

                                                        
       
                                                     tasmad yasya maha-baho
                                                          nigrhitani sarvasah
                                                      indriyanindriyarthebhyas
                                                       tasya prajna pratisthita
         
                                                                  SYNONYMS

      tasmat--therefore; yasya--of one's; maha-baho--O mighty-armed one; nigrhitani--so curbed down; sarvasah--all around; indriyani--the
      senses; indriya-arthebhyah--for the sake of sense objects; tasya--his; prajna--intelligence; pratisthita--fixed.
         
                                                                 TRANSLATION

          Therefore, O mighty-armed, one whose senses are restrained from their objects is certainly of steady intelligence.
         
                                                                    PURPORT

      As enemies are curbed by superior force, similarly the senses, can be curbed not by any human endeavor, but only by keeping them engaged in the service of the Lord. One who has understood this--that only by Krsna consciousness is one really established in intelligence and that one should practice this art under the guidance of a bonafide spiritual master--is called sadhaka, or a suitable candidate for liberation.
