Padhuka Sahasram-434
Date: Fri Aug 24 2001 - 04:58:40 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

434. nithyam samAhithaDhiyAmupadharshayanthI
     nAgEshayam kimapi DhAma nijOrDhvaBhAgE
     hruthkarNikAmanugathA maNipAdhukE! thvam 
     manjusvanA sphurasi vAgBramarI parEva

Oh Manipaaduka! Rishis withdraw all thoughts and concentrate on the 
Lord reclining on Adisesha. The Effulgence placed on the sweet 
melodies seat (of Padhuka) resides in the center of the Lotus that 
the heart is-Hrudayakamala. The sound is either the Vedic 
announcement that the Lord is above on You. Or is it the drone of the 
female black bee, that You are, in love with the Lord!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

1)	Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: "Oh PaadhukE! For those 
Yogis , who visualize Your Lord in the caves of their hearts , You 
appear as a bee , which makes exquisite music rooted in the VedhAs. 
You reveal to the Yogis that the illustrious light resting on 
AdhisEshA is the One , who is above You. Your music is centered in 
the VedhAs and they in turn rest in one's heart region . Therefore , 
I think You are in the center portion of the Lord's heart . Your 
naadham excels both as sacred Vedhic song  as well as the song of 
a divine bee.

2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam:  The inner meaning is that those who 
wish to enjoy the Lord reflect on  Swamy NammAzhwAr and through
His anugraham understand the deeper meanings of ThiruvAimozhi 
and realize their goal .  

3) The bhakthAs reaching out to find the Lord have minds totally 
controlled so that their minds do not stray away from their Lord ( 
SamAhitha dhiyAm ). They find the Lord through meditation as an 
effulgence in their heart lotus resting on AadhisEshan  ( Hruth 
karNikAm anugathA nAgEsayam kimapi DhAma ). The PaadhukAs remind 
Swamy Desikan of a female bee raising the sweet naadham to show where 
the Lord is resting ( manju svanA thvam parA Vaak BrahmarIva 
sphurasi) to the devotees…(V.S).
