Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 3 Text 40

indriyanimano buddhir
asyadhisthanam ucyate
etair vimohayaty esa
jnanam avrtya dehinam

indriyani--the senses; manah--the mind; buddhih--the intelligence; asya--of this lust; adhisthanam--sitting place; ucyate--is called; etaih--by all these; vimohayati--bewilders; esah--this lust; jnanam--knowledge; avrt ya--covering; dehinam--of the embodied.


The senses, the mind and the intelligence are the sitting places of this lust. Through them lust covers the real knowledge of the living entity and bewilders him.


Srila Prabhupada opens his purport thus; The enemy has captured different strategic positions in the body of the conditioned soul, and therefore Lord Krsna is giving hints of those places, so that one who wants to conquer the enemy may know where he can be found. He continues with a detailed explanation of these hiding places.
