SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

466. vikalakaraNavrutthoU vihvalAngE vilaksham
     vilapathi mayi mohAth biBrathI shoUripAdham 
     parisaramaDhiganthu pashya pAdhAvani! thvam 
     prathiBayamaKhilam mE BharthsayanthI ninAdhaI:

Oh Paaduka! When my sense-organs become divested of their faculties, 
my limbs become worn out, my thinking becomes deranged, not knowing 
what to say, to whom, and when I tend to weep, may You please agree 
to come to me, with the Lord on You, with Your sweet Nada scaring 
away all the forces that threaten me.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

SlOkam 466:

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! During my last 
moments of life , my limbs will be out of control and I will be 
crying out of delusion. I will be totally incoherent with terror at 
the thought of the servants of Yamaa taking me to hell for the 
punishment of my sins. Please drive away the servants of Yamaa and 
all my other fears through Your sacred naadham  and bring me close to 
Your Lord's lotus feet! I need Your naadham during my last moments of 
life to drive away those causes of fear .

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PadhukE! Please come to my side 
during my last moments with Your Lord on Your back and chase away 
the threatening forces with Your sweet naadham .

(3) During my last moments , my limbs will be helpless and would not 
be functioning efficently ( Vikala karaNa vrutthou vihvala angE mayI).
I will be mumbling away incoherently at that time( mOhAth vilaksham 
vilapathi sathi). At that time , You should arrive at my side 
carrying the Lord on Your back and look at me ( Souri Paadham 
bhibrathi –parisaram pasya). Swamy Desikan requests the Paadhukais to 
quell the sources that threaten him  with their naadham (  ninAdhai: 
akhilam mE prathibhayam bharthsayanthi parisaram adhiganthum pasya)..
