Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

When does a person perfect the practise of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness? The answer is when the mind becomes fixed and focused exclusively on the atma or soul within. Lord Krishna declares that at this time a person can be considered as having perfected yoga.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The word atmany is used by Lord Krishna to indicate the eternal transcendental abode of the Supreme Lord.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The words atmany evavatisthate means exclusively established in the atma or soul. This means the atma has become the highest goal and only object of endeavour. When the mind has been so tutored and regimented to be fixed and riveted to the atma so that it never strays away; it is simultaneously and automatically weaned from all desires for sense gratification having not the slightest interest to enjoy the objects of the senses. Lord Krishna is stating that at this time an aspirant is considered to possess the necessary qualifications to begin practising mediation.
