Date: Tue May 08 2001 - 13:28:00 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

373. pashyAmi padhmEkshaNapAdharakshE! BhavAmbuDhim pAthumiva   
pravrutthAn BhakthOpayAnathvarayA BhavathyA: paryasyamAnAn 

Oh Paaduka of the lotus-eyed Lord! In Your anxiety to reach devotees, 
the dust from You appears to be driven to farthest distances on Your 
path. Nay, I even believe the dust would cross the vast Samsara ocean 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan: SlOkam 373
(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam:
Oh PaadhukE of the lotus-eyed Lord ! When I witness
the gigantic cloud of dust that you raise , when You
rush to approach Your devotees , it appears to me
that cloud of dust can easily ocean the Ocean
of worldly(samsAric) afflictions.

(2)Swamy Desikan describes the rush with which
the Paadhukai travel to the side of its BhakthAs
(BhakthOpayAna thvarayA).Lot of dust arises from
that fast travel. Those holy dust particles appear
to Swamy Desikan as the consumer of  the ocean of
samsAram ( thvarayA paryasyamAnAn padhaviparAgAn
bhava ambhudhim paathum pravrutthAn iva pasyAmi)..(V.S).
