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

274.prApthADhikArA:pathaya: prajAnAmutthamsithAmutthamapAdhukE! thvAm
     rangEshithu: svaIravihArakAlE samyOjayanthyanGhrisarOjayugmE

Oh PaadukE! Brahma and the other prajapatis, 
who are endowed with the right of presenting You 
to Lord, as He starts on His sportive walk, 
bring You on their heads and join You with 
the Lord's feet.

Namo Narayana,
SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam:
Oh PaadhukE! Brahma and others have assigned rights
to carry You on their heads and bring You to RanganAthA's
chambers , when He is ready to start on His sanchArams .
They unite You to the Lord's lotus feet duirng those 
occasions , When He wants to roam around His world.

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: A fortunate One
wore You on His head.He acquired the boon of Brahma
pattam (status).PerumAL had to go on a sanchAram 
thereafter.The One , who was elevated to the padhavi 
of BrahmA united the Paadhukais with the lotus feet 
of the Lord.

(3) Swamy Desikan addresses the Paadhukais here
as "Utthama PaadhukE ". They are indeed noble 
Paadhukais , since they belong to PurushOtthaman.
Those PrAptha adhikAris ( those who have realized 
Brahma Padham) have you as the aabharaNam for
their heads. When their Lord wants to commence
on His sanchAram for pleasure, they unite You
(samyOjayanthi) with the Lord's lotus feet 
( angri SarOja yugmE thvaam SamyOjayanthi)..V.S
