हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 6.17)

।।6.17।।दुःखोंका नाश करनेवाला योग तो यथायोग्य आहार और विहार करनेवालेका कर्मोंमें यथायोग्य चेष्टा करनेवालेका तथा यथायोग्य सोने और जागनेवालेका ही सिद्ध होता है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

What kind of person is able to begin the practice of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness? The answer is the person who is moderate, restrained and regulated in all activities. Thus Lord Krishna states that such persons are eligible to practice yoga.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna uses the compound word yuktahara-viharasya means one who is temperate and regulated in their eating habits so that the efforts to feed oneself are minimised allowing the effort to achieve perfection in meditation to be maximised.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna is stating that over eating and too little eating as well as extreme activity and complete inactivity are all detrimental to yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness. The same applies for excessive sleep and not enough sleep as well as over indulgence in work which causes exhaustion and hence idleness. To that person who is disciplined in eating habits and exercise, who is regulated in sleep and waking then meditation becomes the panacea for lifes afflictions and the royal path out of samsara or the endless cycle of birth and death.
