|Canto 6: Prescribed Duties for Mankind||Chapter 2: Ajāmila Delivered by the Viṣṇudūtas|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.2.40
sa tasmin deva-sadana
āsīno yogam āsthitaḥ
yuyoja mana ātmani
saḥ — he (Ajāmila); tasmin — at that place (Hardwar); deva-sadane — in one Viṣṇu temple; āsīnaḥ — being situated; yogam āsthitaḥ — performed bhakti-yoga; pratyāhṛta — withdrawn from all activities of sense gratification; indriya-grāmaḥ — his senses; yuyoja — he fixed; manaḥ — the mind; ātmani — on the self or the Supersoul, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
In Hardwar, Ajāmila took shelter at a Viṣṇu temple, where he executed the process of bhakti-yoga. He controlled his senses and fully applied his mind in the service of the Lord.
The devotees who have joined the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement may live comfortably in our many temples and engage in the devotional service of the Lord. Thus they can control the mind and senses and achieve the highest success in life. This is the process descending from time immemorial. Learning from the life of Ajāmila, we should vow with determination to do what is necessary to follow this path.
