Date: Fri Jun 29 2001 - 13:02:22 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

409. anthE mamArthim shamayiShyathasthA
     magrEsarANyApathathO murArE:
     shramOpapanna: shruNuyAm BhavathyA:
     shIthAni pAdhAvani! shinjithAni

Oh Paaduka! The end is near. I would be done up. You should give me 
relief. May I hear Your cool sound, that is heard in advance of the 
Lord's advent, at that crucial moment!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.Satakopan (VS):

(1)	Utthamur Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! During my last 
moment on this earth, I will be weak and will be crying for Your Lord 
to appear before me. He will respond and rush to my side to allay my 
anxieties and help me. The Naadham arising from You at that time will 
precede that of the Lord Himself , whom You will be transporting. The 
sound of Your Naadham announcing the arrival of the Lord will quench 
my samsAric sorrows .

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: The inner meaning is that the Lord
and the AchAryans should make the jeevan happy with their sevai.

(3) The time is the last moment of the jeevan  on earth (anthima 
Kaalam). The jeevan has a lot of physical suffering and mental fears 
of what is going to happen. Swamy Desikan places himself in the role 
of that jeevan and prays for the appearnac eof PerumAl to his bed 
side adorning His PadhukAs to remove his sufferings (aarthim 
samayishyatha: aapathata: MurAri). Swamy Desikan equates  the Naadham 
originating from the Paadhukais At that time to a cool breeze that 
banishes  the taapam (heat) of those moments….V.S
