रागद्वेषवियुक्तैस्तु विषयानिन्द्रियैश्चरन् ।
आत्मवश्यैर्विधेयात्मा प्रसादमधिगच्छति ।।

rāgadveṣaviyuktaistu viṣayānindriyaiścaran ।
ātmavaśyairvidheyātmā prasādamadhigacchati ।।
रागद्वेषवियुक्तै: - After meditating on divya-mangaLa svarupa of Him & bereft of rāga dveṣa-s, आत्मवश्यै: - under control, इन्द्रियै: - indriya-s, विषयान् - in external matters, चरन् - moving freely, विधेयात्मा - bringing mind under control, प्रसादम् - calm, अधिगच्छति - attained
If one does as Sri Krishna says i.e., meditating on His divya-mangaLa svarupa, then all sins are eliminated. Durguna-s of rāga dveṣa-s melt away. Indriya-s are subjugated. Mind is conquered & as a result experiencing Atma in purest form will happen uninterrupted
विषयान् , चरन् shabda-s here does not mean freely experiencing external objects. The next shabda आत्मवश्यै tells us to treat them in a तिरस्कार (censuring) fashion.

It should be interpreted as 'moving freely amidst external objects without any qualms'

आत्मा denotes Mind here
Very nature of Indriya-s is to experience external objects. One who wishes to be free of samsara keeps them under control. He lets them move freely for certain critical tasks needed for living [Eating, Breathing etc..]

But apart from that, indriya-s are fully subjugated
Same as (A)
