भावार्थ:

हे पार्थ! जिस अव्यभिचारिणी धारण शक्ति (भगवद्विषय के सिवाय अन्य सांसारिक विषयों को धारण करना ही व्यभिचार दोष है, उस दोष से जो रहित है वह ‘अव्यभिचारिणी धारणा’ है।) से मनुष्य ध्यान योग के द्वारा मन, प्राण और इंद्रियों की क्रियाओं ( मन, प्राण और इंद्रियों को भगवत्प्राप्ति के लिए भजन, ध्यान और निष्काम कर्मों में लगाने का नाम ‘उनकी क्रियाओं को धारण करना’ है।) को धारण करता है, वह धृति सात्त्विकी है॥33॥

Translation

The steadfast will that is developed through Yog, and which sustains the activities of the mind, the life-airs, and the senses, is said to be determination in the mode of goodness.

English Translation Of Sri Shankaracharya’s Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Gambirananda

18.33 O Partha, dhrtya, the firmness; (-is connected with the remote word) avyabhicarinya, that is unfailing; yogena, through concentration, i.e. (the firmness that is) ever associated with samadhi (absorption in Brahman); yaya, with which; dharayate, one restrains;-what?-manah-prana-indriya-kriyah, the functions of the mind, vital forces and organs-restrains them from tending towards the path opposed to the scriptures-. Indeed, when restrained with firmness, they do not incline towards objects prohibited by the scriptures. Sa, that; dhrtih, firmness, which is of this kind; is sattviki, born of sattva.

What is mean is that when one restrains the functions of the mind, vital forces and organs with unfailing firmness, one does so through yoga, concentration.
