Simple Translation (based on puththUr krishNamAchArya swAmy’s thamizh translation)
For karma yOgis who are without lust and anger, who are free from sensual pleasures, who are focussing their mind on AthmA exclusively and who have full control over the mind, the joy of self-enjoyment is available in close proximity.
Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam
‘Brahma-nirvāṇa is everywhere for them who, are weaned from lust and wrath; who are perseverers (yatayaḥ); who have restrained the mind; who have mastered the mind.’
To them, the yatayaḥ, or plodders (on the Spiritual Path), who are exempt from greed and hate, who have controlled the mind, and who have subdued the mind, brahma-nirvāṇa (or ātma-bliss) is everywhere, i.e., bliss lies in their hand, (means: at hand and not far away).
