Verse 4.21.42

क्षीणायां स्वरसादेव विमर्शेन विलासिना ।
असंसङ्गः पदार्थेषु सर्वेषु स्थिरतां गतः ॥ ४२ ॥

kṣīṇāyāṃ svarasādeva vimarśena vilāsinā |
asaṃsaṅgaḥ padārtheṣu sarveṣu sthiratāṃ gataḥ || 42 ||

It is the abstract meditation of the thoughtful yogi, that weakens the outward impressions, and by dissociating the soul from all external things, keeps it steady and sedate in itself.
