SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

482. viDhEhi shoUrErmaNipAdhukE! thvam vipadhyamAnE mayi rashmijAlaI:
     AsIdhathAmanthakakinkarANAm vithrAsanAn vEthralathAvishEShAn

Oh Manipaaduka! May the streaks of light emitted (by the exterior 
gems), which look like effective canes to threaten and ward off, from 
approaching me, the Yama-team when my last moment approaches!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

SlOkam  482:

1) UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam:  Oh MaNi PaadhukE ! When I am
close to my death , please wave Your brilliant rays as if they are  
canes at the servants of Yama Dharman , who will be approaching me to 
take me to Yama lOkam . That act of Yours will save me from 
punishment by them.

2)Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! During my last moments,
the servants of  Yama dharma rAjan will  approach me to intimidate me 
and take me to Yama lOkam to punish me for my sins. At that time , 
You should appear before me . When the servants of YamA see You , 
they will mistake the lustre arising from Your external gems as canes 
that will punish them and will run away. Here , Swamy Desikan prays 
for the sevai of AchAryAs and PerumAL and their rakshaNam during his 
last moments.

3) The time is vipadhyamAna Kaalam or the last  moments on the earth. 
The Yama dhoothAs ( anthaka kinkaraa:) are approaching ( aasIdhathAm).
I am frightened about what is to become of me. At this time , Oh 
PaadhukE! You should raise Your rays , which are like the special 
canes ( VithrAsan vEthralathA-VisEshaan ) used by teachers to punish 
erring students and drive them away .
