Bhagavad-gita As It Is Lectures

When you are fixed up in Kṛṣṇa, there is no more material motion. That is motionless. This material propensities will not anymore disturb you. That is called motionless. But your motion for Kṛṣṇa activities will increase. The more you increase your motion or activities in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, you become automatically motionless in material activities.
When You are Fixed Up in Kṛṣṇa,There is no More Material Motion
- Prabhupāda 0670


Lecture on BG 6.16-24 -- Los Angeles, February 17, 1969:

Devotee: Verse number nineteen: "As a lamp in a windless place does not waver... (BG 6.19)."

Prabhupāda: Here is the example, just see.

Devotee: "...so the transcendentalist, whose mind has been controlled, remains always steady in his meditation on the transcendent Self."

Prabhupāda: In this room, because there is no air waving, just see the lamp is, the flame is steady. Similarly, if… The flame of your mind will remain as steady as this flame if you absorb the mind in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Then you are not… As the flame is not agitating, your mind will not be agitated. And that is perfection of yoga.

Devotee: Verses 20 through 23: "The stage of perfection is called trance or samādhi, when one's mind is completely restrained from material mental activities by practice of yoga (BG 6.20-23)."

Prabhupāda: Samādhi means, samādhi means… Not to make void, that is impossible. Kleśo 'dhikaratas teṣām avyaktāsakta-cetasām (BG 12.5). Some yogi says that you stop yourself, make yourself motionless. How it is possible to make me motionless? I am moving spirit. This is not possible. Motionless means, when you are fixed up in Kṛṣṇa, there is no more material motion. That is motionless. This material propensities will not anymore disturb you. That is called motionless. But your motion for Kṛṣṇa activities will increase. The more you increase your motion or activities in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, you become automatically motionless in material activities. That is the process. But if you want to make motionless, just the same example - a child, a child is restless. You cannot make the child motionless. You give him something, plaything, some nice picture. He will see, engaged, and motionless. That is the way. So people are motionless. Oh, no no… Not motionless, what is called? Moving. But if you want to make him motionless, then give him Kṛṣṇa engagement. Then he'll be motionless. And that is realization. Why he should be engaged in Kṛṣṇa consciousness unless he realizes that "I am Kṛṣṇa's. I am not this matter's, I am not this nation's, I am not this society's, I am not this rascal's, I am simply Kṛṣṇa's." Motionless. His full knowledge.

That is my position. I am part and parcel. Mamaivāṁśo jīva (BG 15.7) - all these living entities are My part and parcel. So as soon as you understand that "I am part and parcel of Kṛṣṇa" immediately you become motionless to material activities. Yes.
