SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

293. BhOgArchanAni kruthiBhi: parikalpithAni
     prIthyaIva ranganrupathi: prathipadhyamAna:
     pashyathsu nithyamitharEShu paricChadhEShu
     prathyAsanam Bhajathi kAnchanapAdhukE! thvAm

Oh Paaduka! Fortunate people cause to perform many elaborate worships 
for the Lord purely out of love. Such acts are accepted by the Lord, 
when He accepts the paraphernalia in successive steps; this is by 
design. But He wears You in each asana worship.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special notes from V.Sadagopan (V.S)

Slokam 293:

1)	Abhinava Desika Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE!
When RanganAthA observes His annual festivals and goes around 
the streets of Srirangam , You provide Him with transportation 
services. His procession is stopped at number of places to permit
people to offer the traditional six-part upachArams as tokens of
their homage. Although the umbrella and fans serve RanganAthA 
during these processions , it is only You that the people consider
as the preferred object of their six-part worship. They appear to 
thank You this way for bringing their Lord to them.

2). Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! When the Lord 
moves around on the streets of Srirangam , the bhakthAs longingly 
look at Him. They present You in every one of the six aasanams as
upachAram . While  the umbrella and other upachArams wonder 
why they have not been presented to the Lord , the Lord adorns 
You always. He never parts with You .

3). Oh Golden PaadhukE! Among all the paricchadhams ( upachAra
vasthus)  presented by the blessed bhakthAs of Your Lord  for His
bhOgam as a part of the six aasanams   during His sanchAram , He
invariably picks You for His enjoyment over all the others ..V.S
