ayatiḥ śraddhayo ’peto yogāc calitamānasaḥ
aprāpya yogasaṁsiddhiṁ kāṁ gatiṁ kṛṣṇa gacchati (VI-37)
kaccin no ’bhayavibraṣṭaś chinnābhram iva naśyati
apratiṣṭho mahābāho vimūḍho brahmaṇaḥ pathi (VI-38)
etan me saṁśayaṁ kṛṣṇa chettum arhasy aśeṣataḥ
tvadanyaḥ saṁśayasyā ’sya chettā na hy upapadyate (VI-39)
VI/37. Arjuna said: He who is unable to control himself though
he has faith, and whose mind wanders away from yoga, what
end does he, having failed to attain perfection in yoga,
meet, O Krishna?
VI/38. Fallen from both, does he not perish like a rent cloud,
supportless, O mighty-armed, deluded on the path of Brahman?
VI/39. This doubt of mind, O Krishna, do thou dispel completely;
because it is not possible for any but thee to dispel this doubt.
