SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

406. upAsya nUnam maNipAdhukE!thvAm rangEshapAdhAmbujarAjahamsIm
     pathyu: prajAnAmalaBhantha pUrvam manjusvanam vAhanarAjahamsA:
Oh Manipaaduka! The royal swans which are the vehicle of Brahma would 
have gained their lovable voice only from a worship of Yourself, the 
Royal Swan, that bears the Lord's Lotus Feet. It is certain!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V. Satakopan VS): Slokam 406:

(1)	Utthamur Swamy's anubhavam: Oh Ratna Paadhuke! You are
the king swan attached firmly to the lotus feet of Your Lord. I wonder
whether the vehicle of BrahmA , the raaja hamsaa acquired its sweet 
sounding voice by worshipping You and receiving  Your blessings. 
I wonder whether You lent them Your sweet Naadham.

(2)	The inner meaning is that MahAns acquire VivEkam through 
Worship of Swamy NammAzhwAr. 

(3)	Here , Swamy Desikan describes how the vehicle (vAhanam) of 
Brahma , the Raaja Hamsam , acquired  its sweet sound (manju 
svaanam) . The Hamsam  worshipped Swamy NammAzhwAr , who 
himself is like the Raaja Hamsam attached to the lotus feet of the 
Lord ( Rangesa PaadhAmbhuja  Raaja Hamsam upAsya manju savanam 
alabantha) ůV.S
