English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

English Translation - Swami Sivananda

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

6.15. Yoking his self (mind) incessantly in this manner, My devotee, with mind not attached to anything else, realises peace which culminates in the nirvana and is in the form of ending in Me.

English Commentary - Swami Sivananda

6.15 युञ्जन् balancing? एवम् thus? सदा always? आत्मानम् the self? योगी Yogi? नियतमानसः one with the controlled mind? शान्तिम् to peace? निर्वाणपरमाम् that which culminates in Nirvana (Moksha)? मत्संस्थाम् abiding in Me? अधिगच्छति attains.Commentary Thus in the manner prescribed in the previous verse.The Supreme Self is an embodiment of peace. It is an ocean of peace. When one attains to the supreme peace of the Eternal? by controlling the modifications of the mind and keeping it always balanced? he attains to liberation or perfection.

English Translation of Sanskrit Commentary By Sri Shankaracharya's

6.15 Yunjan, concentrating; atmanam, the mind; evam, thus, according to the methods shown above; sada, for ever; the yogi, niyata-manasah, of controlled mind; adhi-gacchati, achieves; santim, the Peace, the indifference to worldly attachments and possessions; nirvana-paramam, which culminates in Liberation; and mat-samstham, which abides in Me. Now are bieng mentioned the rules about the yogis food etc.:

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

6.10-15 Yogi etc. upto adhigacchati. Self : the mind. Let him yoke it : let him make it single-pointed. Always : not for a limited period of time. If the conditions like remaining alone etc., are fulfilled, this [controlling of mind] is possible and not otherwise. On account of the firmness of seat, the time-nerve (or the body ?) remains firm and due to this, mind remains firm. He, by whom the mental activities i.e., those that are in the form of intention, and other activities of the sense-organs are subdued i.e., are brought under full control; [he is the person of the subdued mental and sensual activities]. Holding : i.e., with effort. If the nose-tip is looked at, [it is possible] not to look at [different] directions. Let him remain endowed with the state of having Me alone as supreme goal. This is the meaning [here]. He who yokes i.e., concentrates his self (mind) in this manner, there arises for him Peace in which the culmination - as far as the end-is the same as attaining Me.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

6.15 Ever applying his mind on Me, i.e., the Supreme Brahman, the Supreme Person and the holy and auspicious object of meditation, the Yogin of controlled mind, i.e., one having his mind steady because of his being purified in mind through contact with Me, comes to the peace which abides in Me, which is of the highest degree of beatitude. That means he comes to the peace which is the supreme end of beatitude which abides in Me. For the person who commences Yoga of the self, Sri Krsna, after thus teaching how the mind should be fixed on the Lord, who is the holy and auspicious object of meditation, proceeds in order to effect the purification of the mind, to speak of the other side of Yoga:

Commentary - Chakravarthi Ji

Continually engaging the mind (atmanam yunjan) in dhyana yoga because the consciousness is devoid of sense objects (niyata manasah), he then attains the dissolution of samsara (santim), in which supreme liberation (nirvana) can be attained, and in which there is continuous existence in My aspect as the impersonal brahman (mat samstham).

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna states the results of concentrated meditation is the cessation of worldly existence and promotion to the effulgent eternal realms where one abides beyond the Brahman or the spiritual substratum pervading all existence.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna uses the compound word nirvana-paramam meaning the supreme bliss which commences for an embodied being after the cessation of birth and death in the physical body in the material existence and the attainment of the eternal spiritual nature.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Attaining communion with the Supreme Lord means linking ones consciousness in constant concentration on Him, who is the most sacred reality and the highest divinity for which the mind can concentrate upon. Discipline of mind means being fixed and equiposed by dint of the purification ones mind receives from association with devotees of the Supreme Lord and their contact with Him. Such a person assumes that peace and understanding which has nirvana-paramam or the supreme bliss of moksa or liberation for its result. This moksa is only resulting from contact with the Supreme Being. Thus after declaring how one who would want to commence meditation should meditate upon the Supreme Being, this holy of holiest subject is further explained by Lord Krishna with supplement directions in order to aid one in concentration, purification and meditation.
