cintayanti—constantly thinking; ekaya—with one attention; buddhya—and intelligence; maha-purusam—upon the Supreme Personality of Godhead; isvaram—the supreme controller, Lord Visnu; pragrhya—completely controlling; indriya—the senses; dusta—formidable, powerful; asvan—horses; manasa—by the mind; buddhi-sarathih—with the help of intelligence, the chariot driver; manah—the mind; ca—also; eka-agraya—with full attention; buddhya—with the intelligence; bhagavati—unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead; akhila-atmani—the Supreme Soul, the Supersoul of all living entities; vasudeve—unto Lord Vasudeva; samadhaya—keeping full attention; cacara—executed; ha—thus; payah-vratam—the ritualistic ceremony known as payo-vrata.
With full, undiverted attention, Aditi thought of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and in this way brought under full control her mind and senses, which resembled forceful horses. She concentrated her mind upon the Supreme Lord, Vasudeva. Thus she performed the ritualistic ceremony known as payo-vrata.
This is the process of bhakti-yoga.
anukulyena krsnanu-
silanam bhaktir uttama
[Madhya 19.167]
“One should render transcendental loving service to the Supreme Lord Krsna favorably and without desire for material profit or gain through fruitive activities or philosophical speculation. That is called pure devotional service.” One simply has to concentrate upon the lotus feet of Vasudeva, Krsna (sa vai manah krsna-padaravindayoh). Then the mind and senses will be controlled, and one can engage himself fully in the devotional service of the Lord. The devotee does not need to practice the hatha-yoga system to control the mind and senses; his mind and senses are automatically controlled because of unalloyed devotional service to the Lord.
