• The suprime Personality of Godhead said : One who is unattached to the fruits of his work and who works as he is obligated is in the renounced order of life, and he is the true mystic, not he who lights no fire and performs no duty.

• One must deliver himself with the help of his mind, and not degrade himself. The mind is the friend of the conditioned soul, and his enemy as well.

• For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy.

• For him who has conquered the mind, the super soul is already reached, for he has attained tranquility. To such a man happiness and distress, heat and cold, honour and dishonor are all the same.

• A person is considered still further advanced when he regards honest well wishers, affectionate benefactors, the neutral, mediators, the envious, friends and enemies, the pious and the sinners all with an equal mind.

• 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 upon Me within the heart and make Me the ultimate goal of life.

• There is no possibility of one’s becoming a yogi. O Arjuna, if one eats too much of eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep enough.

• He who is regulated in his habits of eatings, sleeping, recreation and work can mitigate all material pains by practicing the yoga system.

• As a lamp in a windless place does not waver, so the transcendentalist, whose mind is controlled, remains always steady in the mediation on the transcendent self.

• From wherever the mind wanders due to its flickering and unsteady nature, one must certain withdraw it and bring it back under the control of the self.

• A true yogi observes Me in all beings and also sees every being in Me. Indeed, the self-realized person sees Me, the same Supreme Lord, everywhere.

• For one who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, I am never lost, nor is he ever lost to Me.

• He is a prefect yogi who, by comparison to his own self, sees the true equality of all beings, in both their happiness and their distress, O Arjuna !

• The mind is restless, turbulent, obstinate and very strong, O Krishna, and to subdue it, I think, is more difficult than controlling the wind.

• Lord Sri Krishna said: O mighty- armed son of Kunti, it is undoubtedly very difficult to curb the restless mind, but it is possible by suitable practice and by detachment.

• The supreme Personality of Godhead said : Son of Pritha, 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.

• The unsuccessful yogi, 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.

• On taking such a birth, he revives the divine consciousness of the previous life, and he again tries to make further progress in order to achieve complete success.

• A yoga is greater than the ascetic, greater than the empiricist and greater than the fruitive worker. Therefore , O arjuna, in all circumstances, be a yogi.

• And of all yogis, 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.
