SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

     aBhayArThanayA samaBhyupEthAnavisamvAdhayathIva manjunAdhaI:

Oh Manipaaduka! When the Lord's walk commences in a sweet manner, You 
grant an assuring reply, to those who come to seek refuge, in terms 
such as "Refuge has been granted, No fear!".

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Additional notes by V. Satakopan (V.S.)

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh RanganAthA's bejewelld 
PaadhukE! When You travel with Your Lord , You indicate through Your 
Naadham , Your consent to protect those , who approach You closely 
and seek Your protection . You assure them freedom from any fear 
through Your sweet Naadham. 

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh paadhukE! When the Lord of 
Srirangam adorns You and goes forth on His sanchAram , the suffering 
people ask for various boons to get relief from their troubles. Your 
Naadham during the sanchArams seem to  acknowledge their prayers for 
help and  positive response.

(3)The time is Rangapathi's vihAra Kaalam. He is united with His 
PaadhukAs and they geenrate sweet sounds form the movements. People 
are assembled on the Raaja Veedhis of Srirangam as AarthAs and 
VishaNas filled with Bahva bheethi. They pray for different types of 
anugrahams from Your Lord. The sweet Naadhams emanating from You 
during these times of SanchAram appear like Your "TadhAsthUs" ( Let 
Your prayer be granted . Swamy describes this compassionate act as " 
manju naadhai: abhisamvAdhayathi "  .V.S
