Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 2, Verse 68

Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized
Verse: 68
tasmad yasya maha-baho
nigrihitani sarvasah
indriyanindriyarthebhyas
tasya prajna pratishthita

Translation:
Therefore, O mighty-armed, one whose senses are restrained from their objects is certainly of steady intelligence.

Explanation:
Krishna addresses Arjuna as Mahabahu which means O might-armed one. He impies to Arjuna, "Just as you control your enemies with your strength, you should also control your mind."

Srila Prabhupada comments, "As enemies are curbed by superior force, the senses can similarly be curbed, not by any human endeavor, but only by keeping them engaged in the service of the Lord."

Please read the Sanskrit Verse and the Prabhupada's Purport.
