Kṛṣṇa continues to explain to Arjuna how difficult it is to control the senses and what happens when one loses control of the senses.
Kṛṣṇa says that our senses are turbulent, and however much we try to control them, they stay out of control. He says that the only way is to integrate and fix one’s mind on Him once the senses are under control and the mind is steady. The mind cannot be stopped. Thoughts cannot be stopped as long as the body exists. You can bring integrity to your thinking by doing completion with your root patterns. Thus integrating your mind on something that transcends sensory pleasures, it will become quiet by itself. Once the mind discovers the bliss of this completion, it will never want to stray again.

Close your eyes. Sit and look into yourself. First, honestly examine all aspects of your life. Ask yourself exactly in how many areas of your life have you built your identity based on lies? When have you uttered words or made promises, knowing that you are not going to live up to them or not going to fulfill them?
No matter how painful it is, do this process honestly. Do not avoid facing yourself honestly. See this as a wonderful chance for self-analysis for introspection. At least be able to admit to yourself where you have constructed your identity based on lies.

Mentally scan your spine so that you will be able to visualize it easily in this meditation. In the center, alongside the spine is a flow of energy like a slender thread, and that is what we call sushumna nadi. It runs from the base of the spine to the crown, passing through each of the seven vital energy centers in our body called the chakras.
The ida nadi, another slender thread, begins and ends on the left of the sushumna nadi, and the pingala nadi, a third slender thread, begins and ends on the right of the sushumna nadi. The ida and pingala spiral around the sushumna, crossing each other at every energy center, and all three meet midway between the eyebrows.
