To control the mind is certainly the crux of all yoga systems, including the system of bhakti-yoga or Krsna consciousness, which is the only practical yoga system in the present age. Indeed the Bhagavad-Gita states that one who has controlled the mind has already reached the Supersoul, and that the controlled and uncontrolled mind are, respectively, the best friend and the worst enemy of the conditioned soul. Vaisnava Ke? is a Bengali poem, written by His Divine Grace Sri Srimad Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswathi Thakura, containing revelations and practical guidance regarding the types of nonsense deviations which may continue to be proposed by the mind to distract a devotee until he reaches the level of pure devotional service. English translation is given for the verses.
