VERSE 30

Regulated breathing and sense control, discrimination of values between the eternal and the transient, japa and meditation linking the conscious into the unconscious--attend to these things with care, with great care.

'Pratyahara' means holding back; that is controlling desire and keeping the senses under check as horses are restrained by drawing he reins and pulling at the bridle.

The main concern of a devotee is to see that the senses do not play unrestrained. Bhakti alone will give one the power to check the senses. A man may be ever so intelligent; but if it does not help him to sit in guard over his senses, it will not make for jnaana. Enlightenrnent will come only if we, offer adoration with faith unto God and implore Him to give us the required strength to control our senses.
