Devotional Service Wins the Day

Devotional service is superior to “spiritual understanding.” Here’s what the verse and beginning of the purport to Bhagavad-gita As It Is has to say on this topic. Verse: “The senses are so strong and impetuous, O Arjuna, that they forcibly carry away the mind even of a man of discrimination who is endeavoring to control them.” Start of purport: “There are many learned sages, philosophers and transcendentalists who try to conquer the senses, but in spite of their endeavors, even the greatest of them sometimes fall victim to material sense enjoyment due to the agitated mind.”
