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

Thus, one who is a practitioner of Athma sAkshAthkAram (self-realisation) as previously mentioned, who is engaged in AthmA and is relieved from all sins, always easily attains self-enjoyment in the form of infinite bliss.

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

‘Ever thus1 vowed to ātma, the yogi is cleansed of sin, and, with ease, tastes the endless bliss of contact (or communion) with brahma.’

Completely vowed to ātma, the yogi is delivered from all the vast past accumulation of sins. And he comes to enjoy infinite bliss arising from brahma-communion.

Brahma-samsparśa means: contact with brahma, meaning bliss like that of brahma-bliss.

Atyanta=endless or eversomuch, means limitless. With ease (sukhena) means, without effort (anāyāsena).

That the mature state of meditation is of four kinds, is now described (verses 29 to 32):—
