Smart Quote of the Day, October 30, 2015

Complexity: 
Easy

"The so-called yogis who meditate on something other than the Vishnu form simply waste their time in a vain search after some phantasmagoria. We have to be Krishna conscious--devoted to the Personality of Godhead. This is the aim of the real yoga."

Today's Smart Quote is from the purport to Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 2.61:

PURPORT (excerpt):

. . . Srila Baladeva Vidyabhushana, a great scholar and acharya . . . remarks, "The senses can be completely controlled only by the strength of devotional service to Krishna." Also, the example of fire is sometimes given: "As a blazing fire burns everything within a room, Lord Vishnu, situated in the heart of the yogi, burns up all kinds of impurities." The Yoga-sutra also prescribes meditation on Vishnu, and not meditation on the void. The so-called yogis who meditate on something other than the Vishnu form simply waste their time in a vain search after some phantasmagoria. We have to be Krishna conscious--devoted to the Personality of Godhead. This is the aim of the real yoga.
