SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

369. anthE thadhA thvamaviLambithamAnayanthI
     rangAdh Bhujangashayanam maNipAdharakshE!
     kAmam nivarthayithumarhasi samjvaram mE
     karpUrachUrNapatalaIriva DhULiBhisthE

Oh Manipaaduka! In my last moment, when I would suffer, You please 
bring the Lord on Adisesha, without delay near me so that the dust 
would serve, like Karpoora-powder to relieve me completely of the 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes from V.SatakOpan(V.S) : SlOkam 369
(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam:
Oh PaadhukE! at the time of my last moments on
this earth , You should help me with Your power to lead
RanganAthA quickly from His Ranga VimAnam (Sanctum-
Sanctorium) and bring Him to my bedside. Through this act ,
You will be removing my sufferings like placing green
camphor under my tongue. (Green camphor powder and
Sugar are placed under a dying persons' tongue moments
before their death to arrest adverse flow of fluids
that produce bitter taste in their mouth).

(2)Srimath Andavan's anubhavam:Swamy Desikan prays
here for the removal of all his dhOshams at the end
of his earthly life by the contact with the green
camphor like dust particles from the Paadhukais.

(3)Swamy says that the contact with the assembly of dust
generated by the Paadhukais as they rush to bring Lord
RanganAthA from His aasthaanam to his bed side at
the last moments of his life are like the karpUra Choornam ,
which remove his sorrows( thE dhULibhi: samjvaram
kaamam nivarthaiuthum arhasi)..(V.S).
