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

Those who approach me to attain AthmAnubhava rUpa mOksha (liberation of self-enjoyment) after being relieved from six aspects of existence such as old age, death etc and eliminating the trace of connection to prakruthi (materialistic nature), have to know that which is known as brahma and completely that which is known as adhyAthma, and all those which are known as karma.

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

‘Those who strive for deliverance from dotage and death, (have to) know (1) the Tad-brahma, (2) the whole Adhyātma and (3) all Karma.1

‘Deliverance from dotage and death’ means the disjunction from matter-connections, and achieving ātma-realization in its distinctness therefrom.2

Those who seek and worship Me with this object have to know what Tad-brahma3 is, what the whole Adhyātma4 is, and what all the Karma5 is.
