SlOkam – Original

thayOr na vaSamAgachchEth thau hyasya paripanthinau

word-by-word meaning

thayO: – those lust and anger
vaSam na AgachchEth – shall not be addicted to;
thau – those lust and anger
asya – for the mumukshu who is a gyAna yOga nishta (follower of gyAna yOga)
paripanthinau hi – undefeatable enemies

Simple Translation

None shall become addicted to those lust and anger; those are undefeatable enemies for the mumukshu who is a gyAna yOga nishta (follower of gyAna yOga).

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

‘None shall get under their power; they are verily his enemies.’

No one after embarking on the course of Jñāna-Yoga, shall get again under the influence of loves and hates, and thus work his own destruction. For, they will be his most invincible foes, indeed, frustrating his endeavours towards Jñāna-Yoga.
