Date: Fri May 11 2001 - 11:58:14 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

376. rajanivigamakAlE rAmagAThAm paTantha:
     kushikathanayamuKhyA: pAdhukE! BhAvayanthE
     janithamunikaLathrAn dhaNdakAraNyaBhAgAn

Oh Paaduka! Sages like Viswamitra recite, in pre-dawn hours every 
day, the hymns in praise of Rama, and then recall in their minds, the 
Dandaka forest regions wherein the event of Your dust suddenly 
generating Gowtama's wife had occured and they contemplate on it. 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes from V.SatakOpan(V.S): SlOkam 376
(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE!
Sage VsvAmithrA and his peers recite during the dawn
time the incident at DaNdakAraNyam  related the miracle
of AhalyA transforming from the existence as a stone
to that of a soft-limbed wife of Sage GauthamA. Even
when they have moved away from DaNdakAraNyam , the sages
frondly recall this inspiring incident about the power
of the dust associated with You in their new aasramams
at the Snowy HimAlayAs.

(2)Oh PaadukE! The  minds of Sage VisvAmithrA
and his peers ( Kusikatanaya mukhyA:) reflect
on Your Lord, Sri Raamachandran's subha charithram at
the time of dawn ( rajani vigama kaalE Raama-gATAm
padantha:) . They get deeply attached to Your
Lord's sanchArams at DaNdakAraNyam , when the dust
from You transformed AhalyA from her stony state of
existence to that of the beautiful and chaste pathni
of Sage GauthamA again...(V.S).
