SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

300. nirviShtanAgashayanEna parENa pumsA
     nyasthE padhE thvayi padhAvani! lOkahEthO:
     svargoUkasAm thvadhanuDhAvanathathparANAm 
     sadhya: padhAni vipadhAmapadham Bhavanthi

Oh Paaduka! When the Lord rises from Adisesha couch and sets His Feet 
on You for the sake of the world welfare, the Devas follow behind as 
retinue; it is only thereby that their offices could become free of 
any toppling!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special notes from V.Sadagopan (V.S)
Slokam 300 :

1)	Abhinava Desika Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam : Oh PaadhukE!
When RanganAthA woke up from His rest on AdisEshA and united with You 
for responding  to the pleas of the devotees , You carried Him quickly
to all the sites , where the devotees were assembled. The positions of 
the devAs were protected from their enemies at the very moment , when 
Your journey started. Those devotees , who followed You got rid of all 
the dangers that loomed ahead of them  without any efforts on their 
parts. Such is Your glory! 

2). Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! PerumAL was resting
on AdhisEshA. He left that comfortable bed and engaged on SanchAram on 
Your back to protect the world and its beings . DevAs followed Him in
these sanchArams.  Their status got protected as a result .

3).  Oh PaadhukE! Your Lord placed His feet in You for sanchArams
to protect the world from dushtAs ( Loka hEthO: thvayi padhE nyastha : 
). What happened next ? The DevAs ran after the Lord moving swiftly on
Your back. They were joyuous in running after the Lord and Yourself
Carrying Him (  Tvath anudhAvana tathparA: ). What happened to their
ranks and  positions as they were engaged in the act of running after 
You and Your Lord ? They were protected from any harm that might arise 
due to their absence from their seats ( SvargoukasAm  padhAni sadhya: 
vipadhAm apadham bhavanthi) V.S
