SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

328. pathrANi ranganrupathErmaNipAdharakshE!
     dhvithrANyapi thvayi samarpya viBhUthikAmA:
     paryAyalabDhapuruhUthapadhA shachInAm
     pathrAnkurANi vilikanthi payODharEShu

Oh Ranganatha Paaduka! Those who aspire for Aishwarya would just have 
to place two or three tulasi leaves on You. They are sure to reach, in 
steps, Indra's post-surely they would be previleged to draw leaf-paint 
drawings on the breasts of the queens!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan (V.S): SlOkam 328
(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam:
Oh RanganAtha PaadhukE !Those who wish to attain
material wealth realize the fulfilment of their
wishes, way beyond what they even dreamed of.
By worshipping You even with two or three petals of
flowers , they attain the status of IndrAs and enjoy
the pleasures of heaven through their amorous plays
with IndrANis.

(2)Here , Swamy Desikan observes the fruits obtained by
the VibhUthi kaamA: (those ,who wish to be blessed with
earthly riches. They adorn Lord's Paadukai and
worship those Paadhukais with two or three petals/leaves
( dhvithrayANi pathrANi samarpya) and attain Indran's
role ( pUrUhUtha PadhA: santha:)...(V.S)
