That man is called a (true) tridaNDin in whose mind
these three, the control over his speech (vAgdaNDa),
the control over his thoughts (manodaNDa), and the
control over his body (kAyadaNDa), are firmly fixed.
Manu 12:10, tr. Georg Buhler.
The tapas relating to these three is discussed in gItA 17:14-16,
and the virAga view of these is given in 18:14-15. Such vairAgya
is indeed "sharp".
