Link:—Lord Krsna explained the Discipline of Meditation, as a means to attain equanimity, from the tenth verse to the thirty-second verse. A doubt arises in Arjuna's mind, and he puts it before Lord Krsna, in the next two verses.
yo'yam yogastvaya proktah samyena madhusudana
etasyiiham na pasyami eaitcalatvatsthitim sthiram
0 Krsna, this Yoga of equanimity has been preached by You but I do not perceive its stability, doe to restlessness of mind. 33
Lord Krsna, in the gospel of Gita, has laid great emphasis on equanimity, in success and failure etc. This equanimity, leads a man to salvation. Arjuna was afraid of sins by waging war. So Lord Krsna, exhorted him, "Treating alike pleasure and pain, gain and loss, victory and defeat, engage yourself in the battle. Thus you will incur no sin" (2/38). In this world, people incur so many sins, but we are not held responsible for these, because we are equanimous. Similarly, while performing actions and discharging our duty, if we remain equanimous, those actions do not lead us to bondage. Therefore, Lord Krsna in the beginning of this chapter said, "He who discharges his duty, without expecting the fruit of actions, is a Sannyasi and a Yogi." The result of renouncing the fruit of actions is equanimity. Lord Krsna described, the Discipline of Meditation, as a means of attaining equanimity, from the tenth to the thirty-second verses. Keeping this equanimity in mind Arjuna puts forth his doubt before Lord Krsna.}
Yo'yam yogastvaya proktah samyena madhusudana:—Here the doubt which Arjuna conveys to, Lord Krsna, is not about the thirty-second verse, but about meditation, because in the thirty-second verse there is reference to an enlightened soul who is always equanimous. Therefore, here the word 'Yah' (which) denotes, Yoga (equanimity) and 'Ayam' (this) denotes meditation, detailed from the tenth verse to the twenty-eighth verse.
Etasyaham na pasyami eancalatvatsthitim sthiram:—Here, Arjuna seems to mean, that equanimity can be easily attained, by the Discipline of Action, but it is difficult by the Discipline of Meditation, owing to restlessness of mind.
It means, that a striver cannot concentrate his mind on God, so long as the mind is restless, and without concentration of - mind, equanimity cannot be attained.
