Sri:
SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,
Translation by U.Ve. Dr. V.N. Vedanta Desikan Swamin:

273. utthasThuShO rangashayasya sheShA-
     dhAsThAna simhAsanam ArurukshO:
     maDhyE nishAntham maNipAdhukE! thvAm 
     lIlApadhanyAsa saKhIm prapadhyE

Oh Manipaaduka! I surrender unto You, who are 
the company to the Lord, as he rises up from 
His Adisesha couch and walks through the seraglio 
to the Asthana throne, where He is going to be seated.

Namo Narayana,
SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes By V.Satakopan(V.S):
***********************************

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! 
I seek refuge in You , who serves as transport to
Lord RanganAthA in the morning , when He descends from 
His bed of AadhisEshan and travels to the throne room
of His palace at Srirangam. You provide the link between
His descent from AdisEshan and His ascent on the throne.

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! 
adiyEn seeks YOu as UpAyam in Your role as 
the helper( kinkaran) of  Lord RanganAthan
to travel from His antha: puram to His throne
in the mornings.

(3) Swamy Desikan describes where the Paadhukais were
while the Lord rested and what relationship Paadhukai
has with the Lord . Swamy describes that the Paadhukai
was at the middle of the inner chambers of the Lord
( Rangasayasya MadhyE nisAntham) and was like a ThOzhi
(sakhi ) of the Lord . That ThOzhi  was waiting
for Her Lord's command in the Morning to transport Him 
from the antha:puram to the throne room for conducting
the affairs of the day. Just as ArjunA was the SakhA
(dear friend ) of the Lord , Paadhukai relates
to the Lord as a dear lady friend (SakhI ). Swamy
Desikan says that He seeks that highly placed
Paadhukai as his UpAyam ( ThvAM PrapadhyE )
and offers his self-surrender...(V.S)
