Sri:

SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

516. nijarathnakarAnchalaIrmadhIyAnaparADhAnavaDhUya djatthasAmyA
     ramayA sahithasya rangaBharthu: padhayOraparya pAdhukE! svayam 
mAm

Oh Paaduka! May You please deposit me at the Feet of the Divya-
dampati; after cleansing me of all sins by the tip of the rays of the 
gems-which rays are Your hands, so to say-and making me reach a level 
of equality with You (or the Lord?)! May You do it Yourself

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan:

SlOkam 516:

1) UtthamUr Sawmy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! May I request You on Your 
own accord to use Your hands made up of rays from Your gems and use 
the fore portion of those hands to shake and remove my sins and 
virtues ( PaapAs and Punyams) and then qualify me to be near You and 
the divine couple of Srirangam?

2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! May the bright and 
purifying rays from Your gems fall on me and remove all my blemishes 
to qualify me to be at the side of Yourself and the Dhivya Dampathis. 
The inner meaning is that SadAchAryAs through their upadesams remove 
the inauspicious guNams of their sishyAs and place the aathmA of the 
Sishyan at the feet of the Lord.

3) The prayer here by Swamy Desikan on our behalf is two fold: (a) 
svayam nija rathna kara anjalai: madhIyAn aparAdhAn avadhooya ( 
Please banish all my sins with your own finger tips formed by the 
combination of the  rays from Your gems). (b) Please place me at the 
Thiruvadi of the Lord united with Sri RanganAyaki ( dhattha saamyA 
RamayA sahithasya Rangabharthu: padhayO: maam arpaya)..(V.S).
