Meaning:

He who has attained the Bliss of Brahman, the Supreme Joy, He who is pure (free from delusion), embodiment of wisdom beyond the duality of the world, sky high in spirituality, He whose attention is on “I am that” One with divinity, eternal, without impurities, immovably established in truth, He who is witness to everything (from his omniscience), beyond the mind(emotions), without the three Gunas (of Sattva, Rajas, Tamas), salutations to that Holy Guru.
