SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

331. aspruShtadhOShaparimarshamalanghyamanyaI:
     hasthApachEyamaKhilam puruShArthavargam
     chithram janArdhanapadhAvani sADhakAnAm
     thvayyarpithA: sumanasa: sahasA phalanthi

Oh Paaduka! It is rather interesting that the flowers presented as 
oblations to You yield fruits in the form of the variety of human 
goals (Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha), quickly too! The fruits are 
untainted by any stigma, impossible of being ignored or rejected, and 
easily hand-picked because of being within easy reach!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan (V.S): SlOkam 331
(1) Abhinava Desikan's anubhavam:Oh PaadhukE of
JanArdhana ! The flower offered to You during Your
worship results in therealization of the boon to pick up
effortlessly the purest and difficult-to-reach flowers
of PurushArtham . The four PurushArthAs come within their
( the Pushpam oferer's) reach readily. ( These PurushArthams
are (1) arthA / the acquisition of wealth (2) KaamA/gratification
of one's desire (3)DharmA /the discharge of one's duties
and (4) MokshA/the final emancipation from the cycles of
repeated births and deaths .

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! when some one
offers flowers to You , they are blessed with blmishless
PurushArthams. They receive them very quickly. There is
some thing wonderful here. Normally , a flower will turn
into a green fruit first, ripen over time and yield the eatable
fruit at the right season. In Your case, the flowers placed
on You yield many enjoyable kinds of fruits rightaway .

(3) "Thvayi arpithAnAm Sumanasa: (flowers offered to You )
asprushta dhOsha parimarsam ( blemishless ) saadhakAnAm
akhilam purushArtha vargam Phalanthi ( for the worshippers ,
yield all types of PurushArthams almost immediately).
Those groups of PurushArthams ( Vargams) become easy to
pick (hasthApachEyam) with one's own hands...(V.S)
