Date: Wed Apr 18 2001 - 13:46:37 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

Translation by U.Ve. Dr. V.N. Vedanta Desikan Swamin:

361. mAnyEna ranganrupathErmaNipAdharakshE!
     chUdApadhAni rajasA thava BhUshayantha:
     kAlakramENa BhajathAm kamalAsanathvam 
     nABhIsarOjarajasAm nivasanthi maDhyE

Oh Manipaaduka! Those men who are lucky (and who cherish it) to bear 
the highly respectable dust from You, are sure, in course of time, to 
receive Brahma-title; that is they would sit in the midst of the dust 
of the lotus of the Lord's navel. 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan (V.S): SlOkam 361
(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh RangarAjA's MaNi
PaadhukE! Those who wear the celebrated dust specks
associated with You on their heads as their head-jewelery
reach the high status of BrahmA. They find their place among
the pollens of the lotus arising from the navel of
the Lord in due time (i-e) they attain Brahma padham.

(2)Swamy Desikan suggests that those who wear
the worshipful dust from the PaadhukAs (maanyEna
tava rajasA bhUshayantha:) attain "KamalAsanathvam"
or Brahma padham . They have as their seat the sacred
lotus growing out of the Naabhi of PadhmanAbhan ..(V.S)
