Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:
“Yet other yogi offer
the functions of their senses
operations of their life-breaths
to the fire of yog
In the yagya,
there are a gradual fostering of pious impulses,
restraint of the working of senses,
parrying off of sensual perceptions
through a modification of their intent.
In a still higher state than this,
yogi offer as oblation the functions of all senses
operations of life-breaths to the fire of yog
that is lit up by knowledge of God.
When restraint is integrated with the Self
the operations of breath and senses are stilled,
the current which stimulates passions
the current which propels one towards God merge into the Self.
The outcome of yagya then emerges as God-realization,
the culmination of this spiritual exercise.
When one dwells in the God who had to be realized,
nothing else remains to be achieved.
