SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

277. padhEShu mandhEShu mahathsvapi thvam

     prathyAyanArTham kila pAdhukE! na:
     svABhAvikam darshayasi praBhAvam

Oh Paaduka! The Lord can adopt a small or a large foot, depending on 
His form and size in that Avatara (say, Vamana and Trivikrama). Lord 
Ranganatha too can place His steps in small or large measure in His 
stride. You too can adapt Your size or stride to suite His, so that 
You will have unintermittent contact with the Lord's Feet. Certain it 
is that You show Your natural greatness in this in order to infuse in 
us a confidence in You!

Namo Narayana,
