Sutra 1.37

वीतरागविषयं वा चित्तम्॥३७॥ 
(Vita-raaga-vishayam vaa chittam॥37॥)

Swami J. of the Himalayan Tradition interprets this aphorism as, "Or contemplating on having a mind that is free from desires, the mind gets stabilized and tranquil." Try visualizing your mind as the screen on which the drama of your imagination is displayed; calm it by trying to see the blank screen behind your movie of the moment.
