Simple Translation

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

‘Whoso, personages, devoutly meditate on Myself, precluded from all else, for such, —the ambitious of eternal unionship with Me,— I undertake to secure that unionship (yoga), and perpetuate it (kshema).’

An-anyāḥ= Who have excluded themselves from all other desires, or whose Centre of Hope and Joy is exclusively Myself and no other. They ever ruminate on My thoughts, for a deprivation of such thinking would, in their case, be cessation of their very being itself. Hence, incessant pondering over Me is to them an end in itself. Whoso Mahātmas of this description, devoutly contemplate Me i.e., wholly contemplate Me, i.e., contemplate Me in My fullness and entirety (paritaḥ upāsate) as possessed of all the glorious (Divine) attributes, and in My relation to all Kosmic glories, —whoso, Mahātmas, contemplate Me thus— and who aspire for eternal fellowship with Me, I Myself accomplish that end (yoga) for them, —from which there is no returning,— and I do (further) preserve that relationship in perpetuity (kshema).’
