Date: Wed Nov 07 2001 - 04:02:08 PST


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

467. karaNavigamakAlE kAlahumkArashankI
     dhruthapadhamupagacChan dhatthahastha: priyABhyAm
     pariNamayathu karNE ranganAtha: svayam na:
     praNavamiva BhavathyA: pAdhukE! manjunAdham

Oh Paaduka! When my organs sink down, may I hear Your sweet Nada, 
veritable PraNava, with the Lord speeding near me, with the two 
consorts holding His arms in theirs, lest I should happen to hear the 
menacing dicatates of Yama!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! During the final 
moments of human beings on this earth , Yamaa himself may elect to
terrorize them through his roar of anger over their sins. Before that 
happens, may Your Lord rush to their side with the support of  Sri 
Devi and Bhoomi Devi, while You announce His arrival through the 
sounds of Your unmistakable naadham. May Your Naadham fall on their 
ears like the OmkAram of PraNava naadham so that Yamaas' roar 
(hoomkAram) would loose its power to terrorize them. Once they hear 
Your Pranava Naadham, the frightened jeevans will know that Your Lord 
is not far away.

(2) The time is when the limbs are weakened. These are the last 
moments on earth ( vigama kaalam ). Yaman (Kaala;) threatenes the 
jeevan  with hoomkAra sabdham as he looks at the jeevan's heavy 
bundle of sins. Oh PaadhukE ! at those stressful times , You should 
arrive at my side raising the PraNava Dhvani of Yours (na: karNE 
Pranavimva BhavahtyA: naadham pariNamayathu)  and carrying 
the fast moving lord accompanied by His Devis ( Dhrutha padham 
priyAbhyAm dhattha hastha: RanganAtha : )..(V.S).
