Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 70

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 2 श्लोक 70

आपूर्यमाणमचलप्रतिष्ठं
समुद्रमापः प्रविशन्ति यद्वत्।
तद्वत्कामा यं प्रविशन्ति सर्वे
स शान्तिमाप्नोति न कामकामी।।2.70।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 2.70)

।।2.70।।जैसे सम्पूर्ण नदियोंका जल चारों ओरसे जलद्वारा परिपूर्ण समुद्रमें आकर मिलता है पर समुद्र अपनी मर्यादामें अचल प्रतिष्ठित रहता है। ऐसे ही सम्पूर्ण भोगपदार्थ जिस संयमी मनुष्यमें विकार उत्पन्न किये बिना ही उसको प्राप्त होते हैं वही मनुष्य परमशान्तिको प्राप्त होता है भोगोंकी कामनावाला नहीं।

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The ocean is full unto itself and always maintains the same form even though countless rivers enter into it. Whether the rivers enter or do not enter, the ocean is unaffected and undergoes no difference. Similarly when the senses of one in transcendent meditation come in contact with sense objects such as sound and it enters into the sense vector of hearing and is apprehended by the ears such a one still remains peaceful and maintains an equipoise state of consciousness. In other words the sublime satisfaction derived from direct soul cognition precludes any disturbance from the senses or agitation towards sense delights. Whether sense objects are experienced by the senses or not experienced by them one in transcendent meditation will not be affected and will not be subject to any disturbance. But Lord Krishna is saying that this state can never be attained by one who is kamakana full of lascivious desires or is controlled by the same, for such a being can never achieve peace.
