Simple Translation

Oh arjuna, son of kunthI! No gyAni who knows these two paths, archirAdhi and dhUmAdhi, will be deluded. Thus always be united with yOga (of meditating upon archirAdhi gathi).

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

‘Knowing these Paths, Partha! no yogi will be deluded. At all times, therefore, Arjuna! be united in yoga.’

Knowing these Paths, the yogi will not be under infatuation, at the time of departure (from earth). He shall travel by his own (rightful) deva-yāna, or Divine Path. Hence, daily ponder over this Path of archir-ādi. This daily meditation of the Path constitutes the yoga-yukta, or he who is joined to the contemplation (of the Path).

Now the fruit of knowing the Śāstra-import of the Two Lectures (the Seventh and the Eighth), is stated:—
