Translated loosely into English;
Fear (of death/demise) exists even for those who are learned.
Patanjali states that even for an advanced learned yogi, there is fear, fear of death/demise, fear of some form. Most fears are from past experiences, situations, can be from past lives, as a child, one has little or no fear, if fear is learned it can be overcome. Through right knowledge, introspection and meditation we can face and release fears.
