इन्द्रियाणां हि चरतां यन्मनोऽनुविधीयते ।
तदस्य हरति प्रज्ञां वायुर्नावमिवाम्भसि ।।

indriyāṇāṃ hi caratāṃ yanmano'nuvidhīyate ।
tadasya harati prajñāṃ vāyurnāvamivāmbhasi ।।
यत् मन​: - That mind, चरतां - roaming (in external world), इन्द्रियाणां - indriya-s, अनुविधीयते - confirms/obeys, तत् - that mind, अस्य​ - for him, प्रज्ञां - buddhi, वायु: - Wind, अम्भसि - waters, नावमिव​ - ship, हरति - subjugates
When mind acts as per the whims of indriya-s, it deviates the buddhi required for meditating on Atma. The analogy cited by Krishna for this 'abduction of mind' is that of strong winds buffeting a ship on waters & abducting it's intended movements
Upadesa of Krishna on Indriya-s beginning with 'yada saMharate' shloka (58) ends here..
Same as (V)
विधीयते is to be understood as वि - Ishvara, धीयते - Goaded..

Mind is stopped from becoming subjugated to Indriya-s that freely roam in external world.

Goaded by Ishvara, a 'paroksha jnani' takes refuge in vedas/shastra-s & other सत्-vishaya.
By this, the fate of ship being buffeted around in waters by wind is avoided by the jnani & he never allows indriya-s to take control of his mind
