SLOKA OF THE DAY:
Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 68
tasmad yasya maha-baho
tasya prajna pratisthita
tasmat--therefore; yasya--whose; maha-baho--O mighty-armed one; nigrhitani--so curbed down; sarvasah--all around; indriyani--the senses; indriya-arthebhyah--from sense objects; tasya--his; prajna--intelligence; pratisthita--fixed.
Therefore, O mighty-armed, one whose senses are restrained from their objects is certainly of steady intelligence.
Srila Prabhupada in his purport writes; As enemies are curbed by superior force, the senses can similarly be curbed, not by any human endeavor, but only by keeping them engaged in the service of the Lord.
