Date: Mon Nov 05 2001 - 04:09:21 PST


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

465. sharaNamupagathE thvAm shArngiNa: pAdharakshE!
     sakrudithi viDhisiDdham thyakthukAmE vimOhAth
     prachalithamaNijAlavyanjithaI: shinjithaI: svaI:
     alamalamithi nUnam vArayasyAdharENa

Oh Lord's Paaduka! Your Nada sounds, words like 'Enough enough', with 
a kindly favourable spirit to one, who has surrendered unto You but 
who in ignorance of the Sastraic prohibition of repetition, thinks of 
re-doing the surrender!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukAs of SaarangapANi !
When those who took refuge in Your Lord's feet as PrapannAs attempt 
to repeat their  SaraNAgathi , they go against the injunctions of the 
SaasthrAs, which declare that SaraNAgahti has to be done only once. 
The PrapannAs out of delusion and lack of faith attempt to repeat the 
act of SaraNAgathi and run the risk of provoking the ire of Your 
Lord. At those delicate and difficult moments , Oh PaadhukE , You 
come to the rescue of the PrapannAs through Your naadham and remind 
them they should not offer their SaraNAgathi more than once and save 
them from Lord's anger out of Your compassion for them.

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Your naadham makes me think that 
You are halting the confused and anxious ones not to repeat their 
SaraNAgathi to the Lord since it is not permitted by the SaashtrAs . 

(3) The PaadhukAs seem to tell through its sweet naadham that we 
should not perform SaraNAgathi more than once since it is prohibited 
by SaasthrAs. They are confused about this injunction ( Vidhi siddham 
sakrudhithi vimOhAth) and You through the naadham of the gems inside 
Your toeholds seem to say with concern: Performance of SaraNAgathi 
once is enough  ( Thvam prachalitha MaNi  jAlai: Vyanjithai: svai: 
sinjithai: alam alam ithi aadharENa vaarayasi)..(V.S)
