Ch. Dhyānayogo , translated with "Il vero Yoga", = The True Yoga. Chapter number 6 for my edition.

श्रीभगवानुवाच | असंशयं महाबाहो मनो दुर्निग्रहं चलम् | अभ्यासेन तु कौन्तेय वैराग्येण च गृह्यते || 35||

Romanized [IAST]

śhrī bhagavān uvācha

asanśhayaṁ mahā-bāho| mano durnigrahaṁ chalam| abhyāsena tu kaunteya| vairāgyeṇa cha gṛihyate||

In my edition [Bhagavad Gita by Icilio Vecchiotti italian Sanskrit student with a translated Preface and Intro by S. Radhakrishnan; the ed. used Ramanuja, Shankaracharya comments among others. Edited by Ubaldini Editors, Rome, Italy, first edition 1964],

√ related to this verse above the translator relies on comparison with Yog Suutra I, 12:

" abhyāsavairāghyābhyām tan nirodhah"

And it translates this with "arresting- stopping the [psyche] functions it is [conveyed performed] through exercising detachement".

So non-attachment exercised constantly, do practically helps the manas to let detachment arrive.

Author mention also the need for tapasya = austhere devotion.


  1. How is detachement concept associated in the shloka with the compounded whole verse?

  2. Nirodhah word exact meaning and Asamsayam mahābhāo meanings

Thank you


To Stack Exchange: The expected answers are linked to the Sanskrit terms of the shlok. That's it.

  • @Pandya, Vishwad Parishad, Rss, Ramakrishna, ISKON, no one of them discouraged me to learn and chant mantras from Vedas as your friend Ram say. Are 7 years that I am into that. I also like your granthalaya Public channell. Nice books. Something in devanagari still not easy but I m learning. – user22667 Jan 11 at 2:58
