योगी युञ्जीत सततमात्मानं रहसि स्थितः।
एकाकी यतचित्तात्मा निराशीरपरिग्रहः।।6.10।।
।।6.10।।भोगबुद्धिसे संग्रह न करनेवाला इच्छारहित और अन्तःकरण तथा शरीरको वशमें रखनेवाला योगी अकेला एकान्तमें स्थित होकर मनको निरन्तर परमात्मामें लगाये।
6.10 A yogi, a man of meditation; satatam yunjita, should constantly concentrate; atmanam, his mind; sthitah, by staying; rahasi, in a solitary place, in mountain caves etc.; ekaki, alone, without any companion; yata-citta-atma, with mind and body controlled; nirasih, without expectations, free from hankering; and aparigrahah, free from acisition. From the uise of the alifying words, in a solitary place and alone, it follows that (he has to undertake all these) after espousing monasticism. And even after renunciation, he should concentrate his mind by desisting from all acisition. This is the meaning. Now then have to be stated the rules regarding seat, food, movements, etc. as disciplines for yoga in the case of one practising concentration; as also the signs of one who has succeeded in Yoga, and the conseent result etc. Hence this is begun. Among these, the seat is being first spoken of:
6.10 See Comment under 6.15
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.
