Date: Thu Jul 05 2001 - 13:21:39 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

412. maDhudhviSha: svaIravihArahEthurmanjusvanAn shikshayasIva mAtha:
     paryanthaBhAjOrmaNipAdharakshE! padhmADharaNyOrmaNinUpurANi

Oh Mother Manipaaduka! You make for the wanton wandering of the Lord. 
May be, it is You who teaches musical sound to the anklets of Lakshmi 
and Bhoomi, walking along with the Lord, one on either side.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V. SatakOpan (V.S): Slokam 412

1) Utthamur Swamy's anubhavam: Oh Mother ! Oh PaadhukE! During Your   
joyous travels with Your Lord, You raise melodious sounds , which 
appear to teach  the way to create sweet sounds to the ankle 
ornaments of Sri Devi and Bhoomi Devi standing near Their Lord . 

2) PerumAl is " Svaira vihAran". He travels as He wishes. The cause 
(hEthu) behind such unfettered movement  is the Paadhukai through its 
anatharanga kaimkaryam. Sri RanganAyaki (PadmA) and Bhumi PirAtti 
(DharaNi) are standing nearby ( paryantha bhAjA: ) enjoying the 
musical sounds. The Devis  have gem-studded ankle ornaments ( 
Kallizhaittha Silampu ThaNDaikaL or MaNi Noopurams). As the 
paadhukais facilitate the sanchAram of the Lord , they seem to give  
lessons to the ankle ornaments of the Devis about the way to raise 
such  sweet naadham…V.S
