इन्द्रियाणां हि चरतां यन्मनोऽनुविधीयते ।
तदस्य हरति प्रज्ञां वायुर्नावमिवाम्भसि ।।

indriyāṇāṃ hi caratāṃ yanmano'nuvidhīyate ।
tadasya harati prajñāṃ vāyurnāvamivāmbhasi ।।
यत् मन​: - That mind, चरतां - roaming (in external world), इन्द्रियाणां - indriya-s, अनुविधीयते - confirms/obeys, तत् - that mind, अस्य​ - for him, प्रज्ञां - buddhi, वायु: - Wind, अम्भसि - waters, नावमिव​ - ship, हरति - subjugates
When mind acts as per the whims of indriya-s, it deviates the buddhi required for meditating on Atma. The analogy cited by Krishna for this 'abduction of mind' is that of strong winds buffeting a ship on waters & abducting it's intended movements
