Chapter 18 Verses 734 – 740
Similarly, when resolution is firm in the
mind, mental and other activities cease.
O, Arjuna, the knot, that binds the senses to
sense objects is easily loosened, and the ten
senses return to the womb of their mother,
The prana ceases flowing up and down and,
bound together with the other vital forces,
it plunges into the sushumna nadi.
The mind is stripped of its garment of good
and evil desires, and sits silently in its nakedness
behind the pure intellect.
That royal resolution dismisses all the activities
of the mind, the senses, and the prana, and their
commerce with one another;
And with the skill of yogic practice, it confines
them all within the inner chamber of meditation.
There, resisting all bribery, it holds them captive
until it can deliver them into the hands of the
great ruler, the Self.
