SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

464. maDhuripupadharakshE! mandhabuDhoU mayi thvAm
     anavaDhimahimAnam thvathprasAdhAth sthuvAnE
     maNinikarasamutThaIrmanjunAdhaI: kavInAm 
     uparamayasi thAmsthAn nUnamuthsEkavAdhAn

Oh Lord's Paaduka! A puny poet, that I am, seeks to sing Your praise, 
only by Your grace. It is clear. Rival poets in their haughtiness 
talk ill of my work. What if? Your sweet Nada submerges their noises, 
surely, I say.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V.SatakOpan (V.S):

SlOkam 464: 

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukAs of Madhusoodhana!  I 
do not have a sharp Intellect. Even then , I am able to compose these 
verses in praise of You through Your blessings . Other poets 
criticize my offerings to You , since they consider that I am not 
qualified to engage in the act of praising You Known for Your 
unlimited auspicious attributes. They are indeed right .But , 
they do not know that it is Your blessings are the ones that 
qualified me to initiate this effort. You seem to stop these arrogant 
observations of the other poets through Your naadham arising from the 
gems embedded in You.

(2)	Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! When I hear Your 
naadham, it becomes clear to me that there is no limit to Your glory. 
With Your anugraham , I engage in composing this eulogy about You.  
Yet many jealous ones criticize my effort. With Your naadham , You 
seem to command them to desist from such inappropriate activities.

(3) Oh PaadhukE ! I am of limited intellect (Mandha Buddhhi). You are 
of limitless Glory( anavadhi mahimA ). While I am engaged in offering 
my praise to You, the envious poets condemn my effort with haughty 
words (uthsEkavAdham ). Your enveloping naadham puts an end to their 
haughty words ( samutthai: Manju nAdhai: KavInAm uthsEkavAdhAn
