Oh Manipaaduka! When Lord Ranganatha enjoys Garuda-utsava, the Devas 
will attend on You, bring You on the back of their elephants with 
large white umbrellas and with white chamaras being wafted in respect; 
they stay through to perform homage to You. 

Namo Narayana,

Special notes from V.Sadagopan (V.S)
********************************    

Slokam 295:

1)	Abhinava Desika Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE!
When RanganAthA mounts on the back of GarudA for His festivals,
the residents of heaven such as IndrA and his entourage seat You on
the back of IrAvadam , the white elephant and offer You fan and 
umbrella service with steady hands . You follow Your Lord , while
Seated on the back of  IrAvadam during those occasions.

2). A beautiful scene is visualized here by Swamy Desikan during 
the SanchArams of the Lord . Some times the Lord travels on 
the back of Garudan ( VihangaraajE sathi SamadhirooDa: ) ;
at those times , the devAs (svargousa :)  place You on the back of 
IrAvadham (the white elephant of Indran) and  perform chamara 
and umbrella kaimkaryams to You…V.S
