etāvān yoga ādiṣṭo
mac-chiṣyaiḥ sanakādibhiḥ
sarvato mana ākṛṣya
mayy addhāveśyate yathā


etāvān—actually this; yogaḥ—yoga system; ādiṣṭaḥ—instructed; mat-śiṣyaiḥ—by My devotees; sanaka-ādibhiḥ—headed by Sanaka-kumāra; sarvataḥ—from all sides; manaḥ—the mind; ākṛṣya—withdrawing; mayi—in Me; addhā—directly; āveśyate—is absorbed; yathā—accordingly.

Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


The actual yoga system as taught by My devotees, headed by Sanaka-kumāra, is simply this: Having withdrawn the mind from all other objects, one should directly and appropriately absorb it in Me.


The word yathā ("accordingly" or "properly") indicates that like Uddhava one should hear directly from Lord Kṛṣṇa or His bona fide representative and directly (addhā) fix the mind in Lord Kṛṣṇa.
