Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6 Verse 10

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 6 श्लोक 10

योगी युञ्जीत सततमात्मानं रहसि स्थितः।
एकाकी यतचित्तात्मा निराशीरपरिग्रहः।।6.10।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

6.10 A yogi should constantly concentrate his mind by staying in a solitary place, alone, with mind and body controlled, free from expectations, (and) free from acisition.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

6.10 The Yogin who is steady in the practice of Karma Yoga, should constantly, i.e., daily when practising Yoga, fix his mind to the practice of Yoga, i.e., make himself engaged in the vision of the self. He must remain in a solitary place, i.e., a place devoid of crowd and noise. And even there he must be all alone, i.e., must not have a second person with him. He should control his thought and mind, i.e., he should control the activities of thinking. He must be free from desire, i.e., he should not depend on anything except the self and be without the sense of possession, without the idea of mineness with regard to anything other than the self.
