।।2.64 2.65।।वशीभूत अन्तःकरणवाला कर्मयोगी साधक रागद्वेषसे रहित अपने वशमें की हुई इन्द्रियोंके द्वारा विषयोंका सेवन करता हुआ अन्तःकरणकी प्रसन्नताको प्राप्त हो जाता है। प्रसन्नता प्राप्त होनेपर साधकके सम्पूर्ण दुःखोंका नाश हो जाता है और ऐसे प्रसन्नचित्तवाले साधककी बुद्धि निःसन्देह बहुत जल्दी परमात्मामें स्थिर हो जाती है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

It may be further submitted that since it is impossible to control the senses who by their very nature tend to be drawn towards senses objects, it would be extremely difficult to overcome these defects; so where is the possibility of attaining steady wisdom. Apprehending such doubts Lord Krishna states in this verse and the next where he clarifies that one who is free from both attachment and aversion although amidst sense objects attains the mercy of the Supreme Lord. Here Arjunas fourth question is being answered concerning how one of steady wisdom experiences sense objects. The answer given in this verse is that one experiences sense objects with ones sense under control.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna is revealing how one is able to triumph over the senses in the latter part of the verse. He states that even while experiencing the senses if one has their mind under firm control the senses are also under firm control and one becomes successful. This is verified by the word prasade which devotes success achieved by the mercy of the Supreme Lord.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Previously in verse 61 Lord Krishna has declared that who ever meditates exclusively on Him as the Lord of all, being the soul within all hearts, then by this all impurities are eradicated and the mind becomes clear, expunging all desires. Here he says that the senses become destitute and barren of all cravings and aversions when they are mastered by the mind in this manner. Rejecting all desires for sensual objects with a mind firmly under control, one achieves lucidity of mind along with inner purity and blissfulness.
