यततो ह्यपि कौन्तेय पुरुषस्य विपश्िचतः ।
इन्द्रियाणि प्रमाथीनि हरन्ति प्रसभं मनः ।।

कौन्तेय - kuntiputra, विपस्चित​: - One having knowledge of dehAtma viveka,
यतत​: अपि पुरुषस्य​ - who made great attempts in experiencing Atma, मनः - his mind, प्रमाथीनि - can be shaken by desire, इन्द्रियाणि - indriya-s, प्रसभं - by force, हरन्ति - will bring it out
One who has deep knowledge of dehAtma viveka, controls all indriya-s & attempts at experiencing pure & divine Atma, even inside him Desire is capable of wreaking havoc.

It has the capacity to muddle his pure experience, draw out his indriya-s by force & nullify his tapas
बलवान् इन्द्रिय-ग्रामो विद्रॉसमपि कषति ।
proclaims the shastra-s.

That is, the all powerful coterie of Indriya-s shake up great learned men & bends them to their Will
This looks a chicken or egg problem.

Only when we control our desires can we experience Atma.
Only when we experience Atma do we cease to enjoy anything outside.

The next shloka from Krishna clarifies this conundrum for us
