SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

395. dhEvi!dhaIthyadhamanAya sathvaram
     prasThithasya maNipAdhukE! praBhO:
     shAkunam Bhavathi thAvakam rutham
Oh Manipaaduka Devi! Your musical sound serves as a good omen 
foretelling all-round victory to the Lord when He starts on His 
speedy mission to quell asuras.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.Sadagopan (V.S): Slokam 395

(1)	Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh Devi PaadhukE! 
Oh gem-bedecked queen! Lord considers Your naadham as 
an auspicious omen , when he starts on His  mission to destroy 
the asurAs. Your naadham becomes equivalent to the auspicious
omens such as the sound of GarudA and musical instruments
associated with joyous festivals. 

(2)	Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: When the Lord leaves in 
hurry to destroy the asurAs , the naadham generated by the Paadhukais
sound like auspicious omens. The inner meaning is that the sound of 
AzhwAr's Sri Sookthis enhance the hope of the Lord , when He strives
hard to remove the dhOshams of the jeevans .

(3)	The naadham of the Paadhukai is described by Swamy Desikan 
here as Rutham instead of SvanA: . The hurried rush of the Lord 
(sathvaram prasthithasya) on His Paadhukais to destroy asurAs 
(asura dhamanam )is conveyed to us here . That rutham is equated to
auspicious omens of a special kind ( Visvamangala visEsha soochakam
saakunam rutham) such as the dhvani of Garudanů(V.S).
