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

Oh great warrior of kuru clan! I who am having this form, cannot be seen by anyone other than you (who are devoted to me) in this world, (without devotion) by just reciting vEdham, hearing vEdham, performing yagya or by learning vEdham. I cannot be seen by engaging in charities or in fire rituals or in fierce penances too.

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

‘Not by Vedas, not by Yajñas, not by Veda-study, not by gifts, not by works, not even by hard austerities, am I, in this kind of Form, seeable by any in this world, save yourself, O Kuru-Hero!’

By means of Vedas, Yajñas etc., I am not to be seen in this kind of Form, —which reveals Me as I am in essence —by any one, who is devoid of intense and one-pointed love (bhakti) towards Me— by any one than yourself.

‘Not by Vedas, not by Yajñas, not by Veda-study, not by gifts, not by works, not even by hard austerities, am I, in this kind of Form, seeable by any in this world, save thyself, O Kuru-Hero!’
