TEXT 68

SYNONYMS
tasmāttherefore; yasyaof one's; mahā-bāhoO mighty-armed one; nigṛhītāniso curbed down; sarvaśaḥall around; indriyāṇithe senses; indriya-arthebhyaḥfor the sake of sense objects; tasyahis; prajñāintelligence; pratiṣṭhitāfixed.
TRANSLATION
Therefore, O mighty-armed, one whose senses are restrained from their objects is certainly of steady intelligence.
PURPORT
As enemies are curbed by superior force, similarly, the senses can 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 Kṛṣṇa 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 sādhaka, or a suitable candidate for liberation.
