SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

399. AsThAnEShu thridhashamahithAn varthayithvA vihArAn
     sThAnE sThAnE nijaparijanam vArayithvA yaThArham
     vAsAgAram svayamupasaran pAdhukE! manjunAdham
     AparyankAn na Khalu BhavathI ranganAThO jahAthi

Oh Paaduka! After the Lord has completed His rounds where he was 
honoured by the devas, He pauses then and there to dismantle the 
different paraphernalia at appropriate places, entering into His 
innermost apartment. And then He does not leave You till He reaches 
His couch. You are so intimate a companion to Him. Your music is 
heard as far as that!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes from V. Satakopan (V.S):

SlOkam 399:

(1)	Sri Uthamur Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! During the day , 
Your Lord performs all the duties as the protector of the dEvAs and 
acknowledges their grateful salutations. He goes hither and thither 
to protect them . After that , He assigns His servants to appropriate 
places(sthAnams)  and retires by Himself to the inner chambers of His 
consorts. You alone are with Him at that time. He does not seem to 
leave You even then because of the sweet Naadham generated by You  as 
You transport Him to the inner chambers .

(2)	Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: The inner meaning is that every 
one and every thing associated with the Lord stops outside His inner 
sanctum. Sweet ThiruvAimozhi SaRRumuRai however takes place inside 
the inner sanctum.

(3)Swamy Desikan states that the Lord goes about performing His duties
of protecting  the dEvAs adorning His paadhukai and receives their 
adulations ( Thridasa mahithAn vihArAn varthayithvA) . After that , 
He positions  the dEvAs and His kaimkaryaparALs at different 
positions ( sthAnE SthAnE nija parijanam yathArham vArayithvA ) prior 
to retiring for the night to His inner chambers (Svayam vAsAgAram 
upasaran) . The paadhukai transports Him to His bed of AadhisEshan . 
Until then , the Lord is enchanted by the sweet music generated
by the Paadhukai and does not leave it behind like the other 
parijanam (servants). He adorns the Paadhukai until He climbs into 
His bed ( Bhavatheem aaparyankAth NajahAthi)..(V.S )
