Padhuka Sahasram-469
Date: Thu Nov 15 2001 - 03:59:56 PST


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

469. prashamayathu Bhayam na: paschimashvAsakAlE
     rahasi viharaNam thE ranganAThEna sArDham 
     niyathamanuviDhatthE pAdhukE! yanninAdhO

Oh Paaduka! The walk that Sri Ranganatha enjoys in seclusion with You 
on, will produce a Nada, I am sure, which will be to the effect of 
proclaiming, to all the worlds, that all worlds stand protected by 
Him. May that same Nada be audible to us at the last moment so as to 
remove our fears!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

SlOkam 469: 

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! Your naadham is 
majestic and is known around the world for the assurance it provides 
to protect one and all. Your travels help to maintain the continuity 
of Your message. There is no secret about the message that Your 
naadham brings. I have however a personal request. Please bring 
RanganAthA with You quietly to my bed side during the last moments of 
my life on this earth and chase away all my fears !

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! When I hear your 
auspicious sound , It appears as though You are saying that You will 
protect the people of the world and telling them  not to fear. With 
that SunAdham , please arrive at my side and remove my fears to be 
experienced during my last moments on this earth. 

(3) The last moments are described here as " pascchima svAsa kAlam ". 
Swamy Desikan prays for removal of fear experienced during those 
times ( Pascchima svAsa kaalE bhayam prasamatyathu). Please arrive 
with Your RanganAthan in ekAntham ( tE RanganAthEna saarddham rahasi 
viharaNam kuru)....(V.S).
