2374) Whether I know yogic process is to control the senses! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————- Acyutananda: “The yoga system teaches that if you become silent, you will realize that you are God. This system may be all right for materialistic persons, but how long will they be able to keep themselves silent? Artificially, they may sit down for so-called meditation, but immediately after their yogic performance, they will engage themselves again in such activities as illicit sex life, gambling, meat-eating and many other nonsensical things. But a Krsna conscious person gradually elevates himself without endeavoring for this so-called silent meditation.”
Prabhupada: Actually, yoga practice means yoga indriya-samyamah. The whole yogic process, astanga-yoga, is meant for controlling the senses.  ——-———–
