A faithful man(shraddhavaan) achieves knowledge(labhate jnaanam), very much dedicated to the knowledge, by controlling the indriyas(senses). After attaining jnana he will attain paramshanti(ultimate peace) very soon after.

How to achieve jnana – by perfecting yoga.

How to perfect yoga – by faith, by dedication and by controlling the senses.

After attaining knowledge, peace(liberation) follows very soon.

Swamiji – tat parah – hamesha tayar, wohi hamare liye shreshta hai. One should leave their lives to be run by the God, but saadhana we should ourselves do. People instead run their own lives and leave the sadhana to God.

With shradda, achieve knowledge and always be ready to work for it by controlling the indriyas.
