Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5 Verse 6

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 5 श्लोक 6

संन्यासस्तु महाबाहो दुःखमाप्तुमयोगतः।
योगयुक्तो मुनिर्ब्रह्म नचिरेणाधिगच्छति।।5.6।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

5.6. O mighty-armed (Arjuna) ! Renunciation is certainly hard to attain excepting through Yoga; the sage who is the master of Yoga attains the Brahman, before long.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

5.6 Samnyasastu etc. [Here] the word tu is used in the sense of affirmation and it is to be construed in a different order. [Hence the meaning is] : For a person without Yoga, it is certainly hard to attain renunciation. Because, as it has been already shown logically, it is difficult to renounce actions. But, it is certainly easy for men of Yoga to attain this. That has been said earlier.
