Date: Tue Jun 05 2001 - 13:00:34 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

391. shravasOrmama pAraNAm dishanthI maNipadhAvani! manjuLaI: 
praNAdhaI: ramayA kshamayA cha dhatthahastham samayE 

Oh Manipaaduka! Pray please bring the Lord Ranganatha, with Lakshmi 
and Bhoomi hand-locked with Him on either side, with Your sweet sound 
so as to offer food for the starved ears of mine-at the moment of my 
last breath!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

(1)	Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: " Oh Ratna PaadhukE! During my
last moments on this earth  , please make my ears happy with Your  
special naadham  , when You bring RanganAthA close to me. During that 
unique occasion , RanganAthA would be holding  the hands of Sri Devi 
and BhUmi Devi with His two hands . You should bring Him to me in 
that way and please my ears with Your sweet sounds that would 
announce the Lord's arrival with His Devis ".  Swamy Desikan 
indicates here that he would need the help of both the Devis to plead 
his case tot he Lord. BhUmi Devi would appeal to Her Lord to put up 
with the accumulated sins and not to get angry. Sri Devi would 
recommend to her Lord to bless  Swamy Desikan with Moksham.

(2)	Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: For a long time, auspicious 
sounds have not fallen on my ears. Oh PaadhukE! during the last 
moments of my life , You must bring the Lord with His two Devis near 
me and fill my ears with the sweet sounds of Your sanchAram.

(3)	Oh PaadhukE! With Your delectable naadham ( manjuLai 
PrANAdhai ), You must fill my ears. That experience will be like 
enjoyable meals taken after fasting  for my ears ( mama sravasO: 
PaaraNAm) . You must bring the Lord holding the hands of Sri and 
BhUmi devis ( RamayA , KshamayA dhattha hastham RangadhurINam  
aanayETA :) during my last moments..(V.S).
