māhātmyam api cāvyayam

‘In detail, verily, from You, O Lotus-eyed! have been heard by me, (the Whence of) the ingress and egress of beings, as also (Thy) eternal Majesty.’

Likewise, beginning from the Seventh, up to the end of the Tenth Discourses, I have heard of Thee, O Lotus-eyed! the efflux of all beings from Thee, as well of their influx into Thyself, Paramātma.

Avyayam= Exhaustless=Eternal.

Māhātmyam=Majesty or Greatness consisting in being the Unrelate to all the related things, Sentient and Non-sentient; in Thy Supremacy, by reason of Thy countless glorious attributes of Omniscience, Omnipotence etc; in Thy being the all-Prop; in Thyself being the Director of every thought and every wink, and so on ad infinitum.

Hi=verily, is an adverb indicative of the approaching vision (of God):
