Katha 1.2.2. The preferable and the pleasurable approach man. The intelligent one examines both and separates them. Yea, the intelligent one prefers the preferable to the pleasurable, (whereas) the ignorant one selects the pleasurable for the sake of Yoga (attainment of that which is not already possessed) and Kshema (the preservation of that which is already in possession).
Katha 2.3.11. That steady restraint over the senses they regard as Yoga. Then one becomes vigilant, for Yoga can indeed originate (in one) and can be lost (as well).
Katha 2.3.18. Nachiketas then, having acquired this knowledge imparted by Death, as also the instructions on Yoga in entirety, attained Brahman having become dispassionate and deathless. So does become any one else also who knows the inner Self thus.
Mundaka 3.2.6: Those to whom the entity presented by the Vedantic knowledge has become fully ascertained, who are assiduous and have become pure in mind through the Yoga of monasticism all of them, at the supreme moment of final departure, become identified with the supreme Immortality in the worlds that are Brahman, and they become freed on every side.
