SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

410. svAdhUni rangEshvarapAdharakshE! shrOthraI: pibanthasthava 
pachanthyavidhyOpachithAnashEShAnananthargathAnAthmavidha: kaShAyAn

Oh Ranganatha Paaduka! Sages destroy the dirt of desires that has 
grown in one, because of nescience (namely, soul-body confusion), by 
drinking, through the ears, the delicious drug of Your melodious 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special  Notes by V. Satakopan (VS): Slokam 410:

(1)	Utthamur Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PadhukE ! Evolved souls 
hear the sweet and melodious sounds raised by You and use them 
as medicine to cure the ills of samsAram  that they are exposed to.

(2)	Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! Your naadham 
 generates great aanandham for the ears. Some MahAns are able to 
hear those delectable Naadhams. That leads them to realize their sorry
state as Bhaddha jeevans and drives them towards a sadAchAryan ' s
Thiruvadi to learn about Tatthva-Hitha-PurushArthams .Their mind
Then gets  cleared  of aj~nAnam and are thus freed from Moksha 
VirOdhis. The inner meaning is that those who comprehend 
the Dhivya Sookthis of Swamy NammAzhwAr develop true Jn~Anam 
and get freedom from all Obstacles that stand in the way of Moksham. 

(3) Those who taste the delectable Naadhams of the Paadhukais as
they transport the Lord (Tava svAdhUni sinjithAni SrOthrai: 
Pibhantha: ) banish all attachments totally ( anthargathAn avidhyA 
UpachithAn  aseshAn KashAyAn pachanthi) and get set on their journey 
to Moksham ůV.S
