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

283. thvatthasthrivisShtapacharAnasapathnayiShyan
     Aruhya thArkshyamavaruhya cha thathkshaNEna 
     shudDhAnthaBhUmiShu punarmaNipAdharakshE!
     vishrAmyathi thvayi vihAravashEna shoUri:

Oh Manipaaduka! The Lord ascended the vehicle, 
Garuda, leaving You behind, when He wished to help 
the devas by rooting out their enemies; 
but then He descended almost immediately-having 
achieved the purpose, say, by mere will or 
by a speed-since He could not bear separation 
from You! He wears You and walks enjoyingly to 
the harem. He returns too quickly, to enjoy 
Your company during a walk. This is His best 
mode of relaxation.

Namo Narayana,
SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

1) Abhinava Desika Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: 
Oh PaadhukE!When DevAs complain about the harm caused
by AsurAs , Your Lord climbs on the back of Garuda to
destroy the AsurAs and chase away the worries of the DevAs.
He accomplishes His mission in a second and then descends
from GarudA during the next instant to unite with You.
adiyEn thinks that You could not bear your separation
from Your Lord even for an instant , when Your Lord 
was rushing away to destroy the asurAs.Therefore , You 
destroy the asurAs wiht Your sankalpam alone .When He
reaches His destination , Your Lord finds out that 
the asurAs have already been destroyed and , rushes back 
to Your side.Thereafter, He returns to the inner chambers 
with Your help.There also , He misses You after His
sallAbham with His Devis and returns back to You to
recover from all of His exertions.

2)" Thvayi VisrAmayathi " are the key words here .
" He relaxes with You after all His exertions" is
what Swamy Desikan says to convey the intimacy 
of Swamy NammAzhwAr and BhagavAn..V.S 

Remember four years of good friends, bad clothes, explosive
chemistry experiments.
