श्रुतिविप्रतिपन्ना ते यदा स्थास्यति निश्चला ।
समाधावचला बुद्धिस्तदा योगमवाप्स्यसि ।।

śrutivipratipannā te yadā sthāsyati niścalā ।
samādhāvacalā buddhistadā yogamavāpsyasi ।।
श्रुतिविप्रतिपन्ना - With repeated hearing of My words related to Atma, अचला - not swaying, ते - your, बुद्धि: - mind/intellect, यदा - when, निश्चला - fixated only on, समाधौ - Atma, स्थास्यति - relentless meditation, तदा - then, योगं - yoga, अवाप्स्यसि - will attain
Because of you repeatedly hearing from Me about Atma-svarupa, the Mind/Intellect required to fixate upon arva-sukshma, nitya Atma will start growing in you..

When you withdraw from all other things & relentlessly meditate on Atma, then you will attain AtmasAkshAtkAram
श्रुतिविप्रतिपन्न - is commonly translated as one who disregards veda & shastra

But the meaning here is attained as
श्रुति - Listening to Krishna
विप्रतिपन्न - Specially Gleaned
समाधि - Concentration of Mind

समाधीयते अस्मिन् आत्मज्ञानां इति समाधि: मन​: | says tAtparya-candrika
Oh Arjuna, your mind is disturbed by various questions, arising from various quarters. When your mind withdraws from all external things & is fixated on Atma, then you will attain Yoga
At the beginning, your mind is diametrically opposite to vedas/shastra. When you develop the intellect to firmly believe in it & dismiss all dushta-vAdam(s), then a deep meditative state develops in you..
Then the aparoksha-jnana develops. With it, you will perceive Him directly & your mind will withdraw from every external thing. It will stand stead-fast enabling you to attain the phala of jnana-yoga
