Date: Thu May 24 2001 - 13:42:31 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

386. muraBhiccharaNAravindharUpam mahithAnandhamavApya pUruShArtham
     anaGhaIrmaNipAdhukE! ninAdhaIrahamannAdha ithIva gAyasi thvam

Oh Manipaaduka! You are previleged to enjoy the pleasure of being in 
the shape of the Lord's Lotus Feet. So perhaps, You sing in flawless 
tone and announce "I am enjoying Brahmananda" (Aham Annadah)-which is 
the refrain of the Muktas!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V. Satakopan (V.S.)

(1)Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh mani PaadhukE! You have 
received the greatest  bliss through Your attachment to the lotus 
feet of RanganAtha. You seem to indicate through Your faultless 
Naadham  Your ecstasy of Your union with the Lord . Your Naadham 
resembles the Saama ghAnam known as "ahammanAdha"  found in 
TaittirIya Upanishad. 

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Swamy NammAzhwAr's ecstasy on 
reaching the Lord's Sacred Feet and the outpouring of ThiruvAimozhi 
from that joyous anubhavam is referrd to here. ThiruvAimozhi is 
recognized as Saama Veda Saaram.

3) SaDAri Soori's blissful experience (Mahitha Aanandham ) of 
performing SaraNAgathi at the Lord's feet at ThiruviNNagar  made Him 
realize Parama PurushArtham (Moksha Sukham ) and led him to sing 
ThiruvAimozhi in gratefulness. That was the blemishless Saama ghAnam 
( anagai: ninAdhai: ahamannaadha ithi gaayasi)ůV.S
