तानि सर्वाणि संयम्य युक्त आसीत मत्परः ।
वशे हि यस्येन्द्रियाणि तस्य प्रज्ञा प्रतिष्ठिता ।।

tāni sarvāṇi saṃyamya yukta āsīta matparaḥ ।
vaśe hi yasyendriyāṇi tasya prajñā pratiṣṭhitā ।।
मत्परः - Meditating on my divya-mangaLa svarupa, तानि - those, सर्वाणि - all indriya-s, संयम्य - somehow controlled, युक्त - performing yoga, आसीत - remain steady, यस्य​ - one who meditates like this,
इन्द्रियाणि - all indriya-s, वशे हि - will become subjugated, तस्य - for him, प्रज्ञा - jiva-jnana, प्रतिष्ठिता - rooted firmly
Krishna advises on the way to side-step the 'chicken or egg' problem []

Indriya-s by nature sway to external influences. Even though you cannot win over them at this stage, you should try hard & focus on the divya-mangaLa, subhAshraya form of Him
Just meditating on My (Krishna) form is enough to extinguish all your sins. It subjugates all your indriya-s, controls the all-powerful feeling of Desire & lets you get Atma-sAkshAtkara with absolute ease
Vishnu Purana supports above statement of Krishna!!

उक्तं च यथाग्निरुद्धतशिखः कक्षं दहति सानिलः।
तथा चित्तस्थितो विष्णुर्योगिनां सर्वकिल्बिषम्।।

A searing fire along with wind burns a log with aplomb. In same way, Vishnu residing in the hearts of yogi-s burns all their sins
Control all your indriya-s & meditate on Me(Krishna) as sarva-antaryami.
[The meaning here is, I am not different from Him]

The yati who does this great meditation, inside him jnana takes a deep & unshakeable roots
Same as (V) & (A).

The one who does this exalted yoga & subjugates his indriya-s is known as an 'aparoksha jnani'
