Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna uses the words sarva-dvarani samyamya means controlling the passages which enter into the body. This denotes withdrawing the senses from external cognition or restricting the senses from their normal outgoing tendencies. The words hrdi-nirudhya means locking the mind in the heart. It denotes directing devotional feelings from the mind to the atma or soul in the heart and offering them to the aksaram or imperishable Supreme Lord enthroned there. The words yoga-dharanam or performing the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness in unwavering meditation. This denotes concerted concentration in perfectly meditating upon the Supreme Lord with complete attention.
