SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

418. svacChandhaviBhramagathoU maNipAdhukE! thvam 
     pAdhAravindhamaDhigamya parasya pumsa:
     jAthasvanA prathipadham japasIva sUktham
     vidhrAvaNam kimapi vaIrivarUThinInAm

Oh Manipaaduka! When the Supreme Person embarks on a free sportive 
walk, You bear the Lord's Lotus Feet and produce a sound which looks 
like the chanting of a mantra to drive the enemy armies.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V. SatakOpan  (V.S): Slokam 418

1) Utthamur Swamy `s anubhavam: Oh PadhukE! You join with the playful 
gait Of the Lord engaged in destroying the enemies of DevAs and 
generate sounds from the movements with Him .At that  time , the 
naadham originating from You resemble rare incantations that chase 
away the enemies of the Lord.

2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! The naadham that You   
generate during the Lord's campaign (yaathrAs) against His enemies 
seem to suggest that You are reciting manthrams to chase away Lord's  
adversaries. The inner meaning is that Swamy NammAzhwAr  enjoys the 
glories of the Lord's Thiruvadis in ThiruvAimozhi and blessed us with 
the manthrams housed there. Those manthrams chase away the kaamam , 
KrOdham, maathsaryam et al and get us close to the Thiruvadi of the 

3) Oh PaadhukE! You have attained the Thiriuvadi of Your Lord , who 
has His own unfetterd sanchAram with You ( Pumsa: svacchandha vibrama 
gathou PaadhAravindham abhigamithavAn). The joy arising from Your 
bhAgyam results in the generation of a delectable naadham from You 
(PaadhAravindham abhigamya  jaatha svanA ). That exhuberant and sweet 
naadham has the effect of a manthram that is repeated with every step 
of the Lord to chase away the army of the enemies of the Lord ůV.S
