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
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'
