ŚB 11.15.13


धारयन् मय्यहंतत्त्वे मनो वैकारिकेऽखिलम् ।
सर्वेन्द्रियाणामात्मत्वं प्राप्तिं प्राप्नोति मन्मना: ॥ १३ ॥


dhārayan mayy ahaṁ-tattve
mano vaikārike ’khilam
sarvendriyāṇām ātmatvaṁ
prāptiṁ prāpnoti man-manāḥ


dhārayan — concentrating; mayi — in Me; aham-tattve — within the element of false ego; manaḥ — the mind; vaikārike — in that which is produced from the mode of goodness; akhilam — completely; sarva — of all living entities; indriyāṇām — of the senses; ātmatvam — proprietorship; prāptim — the mystic perfection of acquisition; prāpnoti — obtains; mat-manāḥ — the yogī whose mind is fixed in Me.


Fixing his mind completely in Me within the element of false ego generated from the mode of goodness, the yogī obtains the power of mystic acquisition, by which he becomes the proprietor of the senses of all living entities. He obtains such perfection because his mind is absorbed in Me.


It is significant that in order to acquire each mystic perfection one must fix one’s mind on the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura states that those who pursue such perfections without fixing the mind in the Supreme Lord acquire a gross and inferior reflection of each mystic potency. Those who are not conscious of the Lord cannot actually synchronize their minds perfectly with the universal functions and therefore cannot elevate their mystic opulences to the universal platform.
