dhṛtyā yayā dhārayate manaḥprāṇendriyakriyāḥ
yogenāvyabhicāriṇyā dhṛtiḥ sā pārtha sāttvikī
The unwavering firmness equipped with Yoga (equanimity), by which one controls the activities of the mind, the life-breath and the senses-- that firmness is Sāttvika (of the nature of goodness).
The embodied soul is a fragment of God, therefore when a man goes for help to anyone other than God, it is 'vyabhicāra' (he is not having exclusive devotion and dependence on God); and depending solely on God is 'avyabhicāra' (total dependence on God only). The dhaṛtih (firmness) which is based on exclusive devotion and dependence only on God is unwavering firmness. By having this firmness, there is perfect control on the functions of mind, life breath and senses.
