Padhuka Sahasram-292

From: Muralidhar Rangaswamy (
Date: Mon Nov 13 2000 - 13:33:41 PST

Dear Bhaktas,

Due to a lot of work pressure and personal commitments, there was 
an extended hiatus in the Padhuka Sahasram postings. Due to the 
limitless compassion of the Divine Couple and the munificent blessings 
of the Padhukas, adiyen is re-starting this kaimkaryam. 



SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

292. nithyam padhAvani! nivEshya padham BhavathyAm
     shrungArashIthaLatharANi Bhavanthi kAlE
     rangEshvarasya lalithAni gathAgathAni

Oh Paaduka! The Lord places His Feet in You at the appropriate time 
and walks, keeping the umbrella-chamara-like paraphernalia to be 
still, so that He can engage Himself in a graceful amorous sport with 
You, in a relishable manner to all viewers. This becomes a constant 

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special notes from V.Sadagopan (V.S)

Slokam 292:

1) Abhinava Desika Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: 
Oh PaadhukE!Out of the abiding passion that Ranganatha has for You , 
He reduces  the movement of the fans and umbrellas used in His service 
and strolls very leisurely to enhance the enjoyment of the union with 
you.It appears as though He does not want any distractions during 
these occasions. 

2). Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! On special occasions , 
Your Lord adorns you and moves around elegantly . During those times , 
His servants swing the umbrellas very rapidly . Inview of the speed , 
the umbrella looks as though they are stationary .One of the movements 
of the Lord as He is taken around  (sanchAram ) is known as oyyAra 
Nadai . 

3). This slokam deals with the "gathA-gathAni" ( the coming and the 
goings) of the Lord on the back of the Paadhukais. They are delightful 
(lalithAni) to watch and  are steeped in cool srungAra rasam 
( seethala-tarANi-srungara-mayaani)ůV.S
