Date: Fri Jun 08 2001 - 13:00:35 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

394. pAdhukE parijanasya dhUratha: sUchayanthi Khalu thAvakA: svanA:
     lIlayA BhujagathalpamujJatha: shrImathasrichathurAn padhakramAn

Oh Paaduka! When the Lord has walked three or four steps after 
getting up from His Adisesha couch, the sound emanating from You 
announces to Your servants even at a distance that the Lord's walk 
has started.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.Sadagopan (V.S): Slokam  394

(1)	Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! The servants of 
the Lord know from Your naadham that Lord has left His bed of 
AdhisEshan and is taking His first three or four steps .They come to 
know of it, even when they are at some distance away from Him through 
the unmistakable naadham generated by You and prepare themselves to 
serve Him .

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: The inner meaning is that PerumAL
arrives quickly at the side of those , who recite dhivya 
prabhandham .

(3)The sound of the Padhukais gives away the arrival of PerumAL before
the assembly of  servants waiting  outside His bed chambers to 
perform kaimkaryams for the Lord. The moment Sri RanganAthan gets up 
from His Sayanam on AdhisEsahn and takes two or three steps with His 
paadhukai, the servants deduce that the Lord is on His way to receive 
their kaimkaryams and prepare themselves to prostrate before Him. The 
nadham (Svanaa:) of the Paadhukais gives the hint to the servants 
waiting at a distance( dhUratha; parijanasya soochayanthi khalu)..
