नास्ति बुद्धिरयुक्तस्य न चायुक्तस्य भावना ।
न चाभावयतः शान्तिरशान्तस्य कुतः सुखम् ।।

nāsti buddhirayuktasya na cāyuktasya bhāvanā ।
na cābhāvayataḥ śāntiraśāntasya kutaḥ sukham ।।
अयुक्तस्य​ - One who fails to meditate on Me, बुद्धि: - Atma-prajna, न अस्ति - won’t remain, अयुक्तस्य​ - That person, भावना च न​ - won’t have Atma-cintana,
अभावयत​: - Bereft of cintana, शान्ति: न च​ - he won’t develop detachment (vairagya), अशान्त्यस्य च​ - without vairagya, सुखम् कुतः - Where is moksha-sukha?
'yukta Asita matpara:' were Krishna's words.

One who doesn't meditate on Him but instead thinks of taming Indriya-s & all powerful Desire by himself won't ever beget Atma-cintana. How can he do dhyana bereft of Atma-cintana?
In the absence of dhyana, he won't develop detachment. If there's no detachment, where's the question of him attaining Moksha-sukha?

Yoga has anga-s like pratyAhAra, dhArana, dhyAna etc.. with their ultimate phala as Moksha
If the precursor (Meditating on Him) step is absent, none of the subsequent steps will happen..

Shastras call it as 'pUrvapUrvAbhAvat uttarauttarotarasya abhAva: sUcita:'
One who fails to control his Mind won't develop jnana required for Atma-sAkshAtkAra

Without jnana, there's no shanti for him. Without shanti, where's the sukha?

Sukha here means the act of disassociating oneself from all the desires fuelled by indriya-s
Same as (A)
