Simple Translation (based on puththUr krishNamAchArya swAmy’s thamizh translation)

For those who are desiring to be together always (with me) and are engaged in (selfless) bhakthi towards me, I joyfully bestow them the intelligence (known as paragyAnam) which is an aspect to reach me.

Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam

‘Them, ever athirst for union, I, in love, endow with that illuminated understanding by which they may pass to Me.’1

Satata-yuktānām means: those who worship Me incessantly, intensely praying for communion with Me. I give them, out of loving grace, that ripe acute understanding (=illumination=buddhi-yoga) by which they can join Me.
