Oh Paaduka!Whosoever establish in this world, gardens, yielding a 
rich crop of flowers, fit for Your free play, taking the Lord across

of the gardens of the devas.

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan (V.S): SlOkam 329
(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam:
Oh PaadhukAs of  the lotus-eyed KrishNA ! Those on Earth ,
who build delightful flower gardens for You and use
the flowers of that garden for Your worship ,they reach
the Svargam (Bhagavath SannidhAnam ) at the end of
their earthly life and play with abandon in the flower
gardens of IndrA. Swami Desikan states that the Phalan
of flower service to the Lord during one's earthly
existence will result in DevAs offering their services
to that fortunate one.

(2)The importance of constructing Nandavanams for
the daily Pushpa Kaimkaryam for the Lord and performing
VasanthOthsavams there in the season are extolled here.
Such bhakthAs are Kruthina:( PuNyasaalis). They play in
the gardens of IndrA later( kaalEna tE NandanavanE
kreeDanthi). Nandavanavam is IndrA's play garden .
The gardens on earth are known as for Nandavanam
or Upavanam..(V.S)
