Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:
यत्रोपरमते चित्तं निरुद्धं योगसेवया ।
यत्र चैवात्मनात्मानं पश्यन्नात्मनि तुष्यति ॥
paśyann ātmani tuṣyati
“In the state in which
even the yog-restrained mind is dissolved
by a direct perception of God,
the worshiper rests contented in his Self.’’
This state is achieved only
a constant and long practice of yog.
In the absence of such exercise,
there can be no restraint of the mind.
So when the intellect,
the refined mind that has been curbed by yog,
also ceases to be because it is absorbed in God,
the worshiper perceives him through his Self
abides with contented happiness
his own Self.
He apprehends God,
he dwells contented in his Soul.
In the moment of attainment he sees God,
face to face as it were,
but the very next moment he finds his own Self overflowing
the eternal glories of that God.
God is immortal, constant, unmanifest, and vital;
now the worshiper’s soul too is imbued
these divine attributes.
True, but now it is also beyond thought.
So long as desire and its urges exist,
we cannot possess the Self.
But when the mind is restrained
then dissolved by direct perception,
the very next moment after the visionary experience
the embodied Soul is endowed
all the transcendental qualities of God.
And it is for this reason that the worshiper now lives happily
contented in his own Self.
This Self is what he really is.
This is the point of crowning glory for him.
