Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 5 Text 23
saknotihaiva yah sodhum
prak sarira-vimoksanat
kama-krodhodbhavam vegam
sa yuktah sa sukhi narah

saknoti--is able; iha eva--in the present body; yah--one who; sodhum--to tolerate; prak--before; sarira--the body; vimoksanat--giving up; kama--desire; krodha--and anger; udbhavam--generated from; vegam--urges; sah--he; yuktah--in trance; sah--he; sukhi--happy; narah--human being.


Before giving up this present body, if one is able to tolerate the urges of the material senses and check the force of desire and anger, he is well situated and is happy in this world.
