Chapter 6: Verse-19

yathä dipo niväta-stho
nengate sopamä smrtä
yogino yata-cittasya
yunjato yogam ätmanah[1]


As a lamp in a windless place does not waver, so the transcendentalist, whose mind is controlled, remains always steady in his meditation on the transcendent self.


A truly krsna conscious person, always absorbed in transcendence, in constant undisturbed meditation on his worshipable Lord, is as steady as a lamp in a windless place.
