Sri:

SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

320. samBhavathu pAdharakshE! sathyasuparNAdhiroUpavAhyagaNa:
     yAthrAsu rangaBharthu: praThamaparispandhakAraNam BhavathI

Oh Paaduka! When Lord Ranganatha is on a tour, even if He may have any 
number of vehicles, say, Satya, Suparna, etc., (or Garuda) for 
example, He has to seek You for placing His Feet first.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

(1) Abhinava Desika UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! When 
RanganAthA has to use other means of transportation , You transport 
Him first, where that transporting agent is and get Him started
on His journey. For instance, when RanganAthA has to travel on GarudA 
(Satyan or SuparNan ), Your Lord arrives on Your back to the place , 
where GarudA is waiting for Him eagerly. Therefore , You are 
intimately involved partly or wholly in providing transportation 
service to Your Lord always.

(2)Here, Swamy Desikan recognizes and salutes 
the Paadhukais as " BhavathI praTama-parispandha kAraNam " (You are 
always  the instrument for the very first portion  of the Lord's 
Journey on His Vijaya Yaathrais). The Lord has to travel a few steps 
on His Paadhukais before reaching the Vaahana MaNTapam to transport 
the Lord  further ..V.S
