SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

310. parisaramupayAthA pAdhukE! pashya mAtha:
     karaNavilayaKhEdhAth kAndhishIkE vivEkE
     puruShamupanayanthI pundarIkAkshamagrE
     punarudharanivAsaklEshavicChEdhanam na:

Oh Mother Paaduka! At the moment of one's death, the senses become 
ineffective, one's 
discernment of the right totally fails, at that very instant may You 
help me-so that I 
would not have to suffer a rebirth-by bringing the Lord before me to 
make me see Him-the 
Lord with lotus eyes, the Lord who is the remover of grief! You should 
see to this.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

(1) Abinava Desika UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh Mother PaadukE ! 
When my time to leave this world nears ,
my senses and body will not be in my control. I would not be 
able to reflect on You due to my rapidly diminishing capacities.
At that time , Please bring Your lotus-eyed Lord before me and    
save me from reentering the wombs of women  in this world. 
If You bring Your Lord before me during my last moments ,
It would be equal to You looking at me with Your compassionate eyes. 
Please help me ! 

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! During my last moments 
, You should bring PerumAl before me . With Your (Achaaryan's ) and 
PerumAL's presence, adiyEn will be freed  from rebirth .

(3) Oh Mother PaadhukE ! During my last moments on this earth , my 
indhriyams and vivEkam (discriminatory skills)would have abandoned me 
.. It is at this time , You should give me Your darsana soubhAgyam with 
Your Lord to chase away the fears of experiencing the cycles of 
repeated birth and death (punarapi jananam , punarapi maraNam ,
punarapi jananI jaDirE sayanam ).... V. S
