Simple Translation (based on puththUr krishNamAchArya swAmy’s thamizh translation)
Oh head of bharatha clan! Know that how many ever entities are born as an immovable entity or a movable entity, all such entities are (created) due to the combination of the two principles namely kshEthra (body) and kshEthragya (soul) .
Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam
‘Whatsoever a thing, mobile or immobile springs up into existence, know that, O Best of Bharatas, (to be) from union of kshetra-kshetrajña.’
Whatsoever thing —how so ever minute the mobile or immobile- is seen springing up into existence, it is so from the mutual conjunction of (matter) and (soul). It is always a compound existence, never independent of each other.
