Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 3 Text 42

indriyani parany ahur
indriyebhyah param manah
manasas tu para buddhir
yo buddheh paratas tu sah

indriyani--senses; parani--superior; ahuh--are said; indriyebhyah--more than the senses; param--superior; manah--the mind; manasah--more than the mind; tu--also; para--superior; buddhih--intelligence; yah--who; buddheh--more than the intelligence; paratah--superior; tu--but; sah--he.


The working senses are superior to dull matter; mind is higher than the senses; intelligence is still higher than the mind; and he [the soul] is even higher than the intelligence.


Srila Prabhupada, in his excellent style, boils it down when he writes; With intelligence one has to seek out the constitutional position of the soul and then engage the mind always in Krsna consciousness. That solves the whole problem.
