Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Bhagavad-gita As It Is 2.68
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.
One can curb the forces of sense gratification only by means of Krsna consciousness, or engaging all the senses in the transcendental loving service of the Lord. 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. One who has understood this -- that only by Krsna consciousness is one really established in intelligence and that one should practice this art under the guidance of a bona fide spiritual master -- is called sadhaka, or a suitable candidate for liberation.
