इन्द्रियाणि मनो बुद्धिरस्याधिष्ठानमुच्यते।
एतैर्विमोहयत्येष ज्ञानमावृत्य देहिनम्।।3.40।।
।।3.40।।इन्द्रियाँ मन और बुद्धि इस कामके वासस्थान कहे गये हैं। यह काम इन(इन्द्रियाँ मन और बुद्धि) के द्वारा ज्ञानको ढककर देहाभिमानी मनुष्यको मोहित करता है।
The senses, the mind and the intellect which controls the discriminatory faculty, is where kama or lust covertly resides and exercises its dominion over the atma or soul. Through kama the senses, the mind and the intellect become addicted to craving for sense objects. Kama seizes hold of the embodied beings and beguiles them by clouding the intellect and then kama covers and envelopes the atma or soul of that being in many ways and who subsequently becomes kamas slave doing anything to gratify its senses and is plunged into the prison garden of sense objects. This is what Lord Krishna is stating here.
