SLOKA OF THE DAY:
Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 58
yada samharate cayam
kurmo 'nganiva sarvasah
tasya prajna pratisthita
yada--when; samharate--winds up; ca--also; ayam--he; kurmah--tortoise; angani--limbs; iva--like; sarvasah--altogether; indriyani--senses; indriya-arthebhyah--from the sense objects; tasya--his; prajna--consciousness; pratisthita--fixed.
One who is able to withdraw his senses from sense objects, as the tortoise draws its limbs within the shell, is firmly fixed in perfect consciousness.
Srila Prabhupada opens his purport with these words; The test of a yogi, devotee, or self-realized soul is that he is able to control the senses according to his plan. That is the answer to the question as to how the yogi is situated.
