Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6 Verse 19

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 6 श्लोक 19

यथा दीपो निवातस्थो नेङ्गते सोपमा स्मृता।
योगिनो यतचित्तस्य युञ्जतो योगमात्मनः।।6.19।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 6.19)

।।6.19।।जैसे स्पन्दनरहित वायुके स्थानमें स्थित दीपककी लौ चेष्टारहित हो जाती है योगका अभ्यास करते हुए यतचित्तवाले योगीके चित्तकी वैसी ही उपमा कही गयी है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

A simile is given in this verse by Lord Krishna in His comparison of a candle flame that never wavers in a windless place and the mind of a yogi or one perfected in the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness, rapt in concentrated meditation, bright and steady like a flame never flickering away from the atma or soul.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Here Lord Krishna uses the word atmanah to indicate the eternal, resplendent Supreme Lord Himself.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

As a candle flame when sheltered from the wind will not flicker but burns bright and steady. The word smrta means evidenced and is cited by those who are experienced in the science of meditation and used as a simile to illustrate how meditation on the atma or soul becomes steady and effulgent to that yogi or one perfected in the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness who concentrates upon the atma after with drawing the mind from every other objects of attention. Lord Krishna is stating that the atma shines steady and radiant in the light of meditative spiritual intelligence by reason that all extraneous and miscellaneous distractions of the mind have been sequestered out exactly as a candle flame shines constant and bright when all wind has been sequestered out from around it.
