Srimad Bhagavatam 11.13.15-17 - Glory of Kumar Sampradaya (download mp3)
by Sankirtan Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty

SB 11.13.15
sri-uddhava uvaca
yada tvam sanakadibhyo
 yena rupena kesava
yogam adistavan etad
 rupam icchami veditum

Sri Uddhava said: My dear Kesava, at what time and in what form did You instruct the science of yoga to Sanaka and his brothers? I now desire to know about these things.

SB 11.13.16
sri-bhagavan uvaca
putra hiranyagarbhasya
 manasah sanakadayah
papracchuh pitaram suksmam
 yogasyaikantikim gatim

The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Once, the mental sons of Lord Brahma, namely, the sages headed by Sanaka, inquired from their father about the difficult subject matter of the supreme goal of yoga.

SB 11.13.17
sanakadaya ucuh
gunesv avisate ceto
 gunas cetasi ca prabho
katham anyonya-santyago
 mumuksor atititirsoh

The sages headed by Sanaka said: O Lord, people’s minds are naturally attracted to material sense objects, and similarly the sense objects in the form of desire enter within the mind. Therefore, how can a person who desires liberation, who desires to cross over activities of sense gratification, destroy this mutual relationship between the sense objects and the mind? Please explain this to us.

As described above, as long as one is a conditioned soul the modes of material nature, manifested in the form of sense objects, constantly disturb the mind, and by their harassment one is deprived of the actual perfection of life.
