Hello.. I would like to share some wisdom with you.
BG 6.10: A transcendentalist should always engage his body, mind and self in relationship with the Supreme; he should live alone in a secluded place
and should always carefully control his mind. He should be free from desires and feelings of possessiveness.
BG 6.11-12: To practice yoga, one should go to a secluded place and should lay kuśa grass on the ground and then cover it with a deerskin and a soft
cloth. The seat should be neither too high nor too low and should be situated in a sacred place. The yogī should then sit on it very firmly and
practice yoga to purify the heart by controlling his mind, senses and activities and fixing the mind on one point.
BG 6.13-14: One should hold one's body, neck and head erect in a straight line and stare steadily at the tip of the nose. Thus, with an unagitated,
subdued mind, devoid of fear, completely free from sex life, one should meditate upon Me within the heart and make Me the ultimate goal of life.
BG 6.15: Thus practicing constant control of the body, mind and activities, the mystic transcendentalist, his mind regulated, attains to the kingdom
of God [or the abode of Kṛṣṇa] by cessation of material existence.
BG 6.16: There is no possibility of one's becoming a yogī, O Arjuna, if one eats too much or eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep
BG 6.17: He who is regulated in his habits of eating, sleeping, recreation and work can mitigate all material pains by practicing the yoga system.
BG 6.18: When the yogī, by practice of yoga, disciplines his mental activities and becomes situated in transcendence — devoid of all material
desires — he is said to be well established in yoga.
BG 6.19: As a lamp in a windless place does not waver, so the transcendentalist, whose mind is controlled, remains always steady in his meditation on
the transcendent self.
BG 6.20-23: In the stage of perfection called trance, or samādhi, one's mind is completely restrained from material mental activities by practice of
yoga. This perfection is characterized by one's ability to see the self by the pure mind and to relish and rejoice in the self. In that joyous state,
one is situated in boundless transcendental happiness, realized through transcendental senses. Established thus, one never departs from the truth, and
upon gaining this he thinks there is no greater gain. Being situated in such a position, one is never shaken, even in the midst of greatest
difficulty. This indeed is actual freedom from all miseries arising from material contact.
BG 6.24: One should engage oneself in the practice of yoga with determination and faith and not be deviated from the path. One should abandon, without
exception, all material desires born of mental speculation and thus control all the senses on all sides by the mind.
BG 6.25: Gradually, step by step, one should become situated in trance by means of intelligence sustained by full conviction, and thus the mind should
be fixed on the self alone and should think of nothing else.
BG 6.26: From wherever the mind wanders due to its flickering and unsteady nature, one must certainly withdraw it and bring it back under the control
of the self.
BG 6.27: The yogī whose mind is fixed on Me verily attains the highest perfection of transcendental happiness. He is beyond the mode of passion, he
realizes his qualitative identity with the Supreme, and thus he is freed from all reactions to past deeds.
BG 6.28: Thus the self-controlled yogī, constantly engaged in yoga practice, becomes free from all material contamination and achieves the highest
stage of perfect happiness in transcendental loving service to the Lord.
BG 6.29: A true yogī observes Me in all beings and also sees every being in Me. Indeed, the self-realized person sees Me, the same Supreme Lord,
BG 6.30: For one who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, I am never lost, nor is he ever lost to Me.
BG 6.31: Such a yogī, who engages in the worshipful service of the Supersoul, knowing that I and the Supersoul are one, remains always in Me in all
BG 6.32: He is a perfect yogī who, by comparison to his own self, sees the true equality of all beings, in both their happiness and their distress, O
BG 6.33: Arjuna said: O Madhusūdana, the system of yoga which You have summarized appears impractical and unendurable to me, for the mind is restless
BG 6.34: For the mind is restless, turbulent, obstinate and very strong, O Kṛṣṇa, and to subdue it, I think, is more difficult than controlling
BG 6.35: Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa said: O mighty-armed son of Kuntī, it is undoubtedly very difficult to curb the restless mind, but it is possible by
suitable practice and by detachment.
BG 6.36: For one whose mind is unbridled, self-realization is difficult work. But he whose mind is controlled and who strives by appropriate means is
assured of success. That is My opinion.
BG 6.37: Arjuna said: O Kṛṣṇa, what is the destination of the unsuccessful transcendentalist, who in the beginning takes to the process of
self-realization with faith but who later desists due to worldly-mindedness and thus does not attain perfection in mysticism?
BG 6.38: O mighty-armed Kṛṣṇa, does not such a man, who is bewildered from the path of transcendence, fall away from both spiritual and material
success and perish like a riven cloud, with no position in any sphere?
BG 6.39: This is my doubt, O Kṛṣṇa, and I ask You to dispel it completely. But for You, no one is to be found who can destroy this doubt.
BG 6.40: The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Son of Pṛthā, a transcendentalist engaged in auspicious activities does not meet with destruction
either in this world or in the spiritual world; one who does good, My friend, is never overcome by evil.
BG 6.41: The unsuccessful yogī, after many, many years of enjoyment on the planets of the pious living entities, is born into a family of righteous
people, or into a family of rich aristocracy.
BG 6.42: Or [if unsuccessful after long practice of yoga] he takes his birth in a family of transcendentalists who are surely great in wisdom.
Certainly, such a birth is rare in this world.
BG 6.43: On taking such a birth, he revives the divine consciousness of his previous life, and he again tries to make further progress in order to
achieve complete success, O son of Kuru.
BG 6.44: By virtue of the divine consciousness of his previous life, he automatically becomes attracted to the yogic principles — even without
seeking them. Such an inquisitive transcendentalist stands always above the ritualistic principles of the scriptures.
BG 6.45: And when the yogī engages himself with sincere endeavor in making further progress, being washed of all contaminations, then ultimately,
achieving perfection after many, many births of practice, he attains the supreme goal.
BG 6.46: A yogī is greater than the ascetic, greater than the empiricist and greater than the fruitive worker. Therefore, O Arjuna, in all
circumstances, be a yogī.
BG 6.47: And of all yogīs, the one with great faith who always abides in Me, thinks of Me within himself, and renders transcendental loving service
to Me — he is the most intimately united with Me in yoga and is the highest of all. That is My opinion.
