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

‘Yet more, I shall declare, of the best wisdom of wisdoms, having which the Munis all have, from hence1, passed to perfection.’

The Blessed Lord continued:

Param=yet more, of the wisdom concerning satva etc., the qualities influencing the matter-soul union different from what has been told. This wisdom surpasses all that has yet been told you relating to this union.

Munis=those who possessing this wisdom ponder over it; and pass on to the supreme state of spiritual realization (siddhi), from hence i.e., from the sphere of samsāra.

This wisdom is extolled, viewing it by its fruits:
