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

278. krupAvishEShAth kshamayA samEthAm
     pravarthamAnAm jagathO viBhUthyaI
     avaImi nithyam maNipAdhukE! thvAm
     AkasmikIm rangapathE: prasatthim

Oh Manipaaduka! I identify You with the Lord Ranganatha's benevolent 
grace, which is induced by Mahalakshmi's special kindness and is 
enhanced by Bhoomi Devi, which grace flows for the world's beautiful 
flowering, for reasons that can never be assigned-that is ever
present in Your role.

Namo Narayana,
SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan(V.S):

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh Gem-studded 
PaadhukE! adiyEn recognizes You as the fruit of 
Sri RanganAthA's unexpected grace rushing towards us 
all with great speed. As a result of the Lord's
inifnite compassion , You came to this earth and move
about with patience to bless every one.Here , Swamy
Desikan hints that the Lord's grace and that of 
the Paadhukai is one and the same and points out 
that the earth is blessed , when it has the sambhandham of 
the Lord's Paadhukai. Swamy Desikan celebrates here
the Sri RanganAthA's incarnations and the soulabhyam
(ease of access by one and all ) of the Paadhukai .

(2)Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! When we
see Your sanchArams (movements) , it becomes clear to us
that You are the embodiment of the causeless dayaa of
the Lord that descended on this earth for 
the benevolence of the universe. 

(3)Swamy Desikan equates the spontaneous and
causeless ( aakasmikIm ) DayA(prasatthim) of
the Paadhukai during its sanchArams with   
the svAbhAvika dayA of the Lord .The Paadhukai
does the sanchAram for enhancing the isvaryam
(vibhUthi) of the world and its beings . The inner
meaning according to Srimath Andavan is that PerumAL's
concern for the well being of the world resulted
in the incarnation of AzhwAr (sataari Soori) on
this earth..V.S
