अयतिः श्रद्धयोपेतो योगाच्चलितमानसः।
अप्राप्य योगसंसिद्धिं कां गतिं कृष्ण गच्छति।।6.37।।
।।6.37।। अर्जुन ने कहा हे कृष्ण जिसका मन योग से चलायमान हो गया है ऐसा अपूर्ण प्रयत्न वाला (अयति) श्रद्धायुक्त पुरुष योग की सिद्धि को न प्राप्त होकर किस गति को प्राप्त होता है
The word ayatih means one who does not earnestly endeavour. Now begins the summation. The special meaning Lord Krishna is giving is denoted by the word ayatih or one who does not endeavour by the regulated practice of meditation or contrarily one who abstains from the practise of meditation that was already begun. The words aprapya yoga-samsiddhim mean without achieving the complete potential of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with ultimate consciousness. Although for the word yoga there is the established meaning, perfection in meditation is the inferred meaning here. Thus failure in perfecting meditation is not contradictory.
