Date: Fri Aug 31 2001 - 05:00:23 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

439. kAlOpapannakaraNAthyayanirvichEShtE
     jAthashramE mayi janArdhanapAdharakshE!
     AmshvAsanAya puratha: prasaranthu mAtha-
     vArthAharAsthava ravA: shamithArthayO mE

Oh Paaduka of the Lord! Please do me a favour. When the time to die 
comes, when all the motion-organs cease to act, when the body lies 
still, when grief overcomes me,-when I cannot say or do anything even-
, You must enable me to hear Your melodious sound, informing in 
advance!, that You are bringing my Lord, so that it would remove 
my grief and distress and would be a great solace to me. 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! When I am in my last
moments of my life , I will be unable even to request Your help or to 
fold my hands in reverence to You . I beg You to come before me at 
that time and comfort me with Your sweet sounds , which would be the 
indicators of Your  Lord's  arrival at my bedside. May Your naadham 
surround me on all sides , when I will be totally helpless. 

2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: During my last moments on earth , Your
Naadham should come near me saying that the Lord is going to protect 

3) Oh PaadhukE ! during my last moments , my indhriyams and their 
activities would have lost their power ( Kaala upapanna karaNa 
athyayam nirvishtE mayi). I will be tormented with fears. I would 
need comforting ( aasvAsanam). You must bring a sweet message ( 
VaarthAharA: rava: ) from the Lord through Your sweet Naadham  to 
quench my fears .(V.S).
