SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

472. vilAsaI: krINanthO niKhilajanachEthAmsi viviDhA:
     vihArAsthE rangakshithiramaNapAdhAvani! muhu:
     vigAhanthAmantharmama viluTadhantharmaNishilA

Oh Lord's Paaduka! You would almost purchase the hearts of all people 
for Your elegant gait; the added seduction is caused by the 'Khaluk' 
sound emitted by the gems in the Paaduka, which is a stream flow, as 
it were of nectar. The conduits for that nectar-flow are Your variety 
of walk-features. All these aspects should always be in my heart to 
regale me!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

SlOkam 472:

(1) UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh Paadhukais of the Lord who dances 
in Srirangam ! Your graceful movements captivate everyone's heart . 
Your novel and varied steps make the gems inside You collide with one 
another and create an indescribable sweet naadham . May the life-
giving nectar associated with that naadham enter my mind and cause 
the ecstasy, which will inspire me to compose verses in praise of You 
with distinction.

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh Ranga PaadhukE! As you move
around with your Lord on His many sanchArams , You raise many 
patterns of  sweet naadham . May I always remember these sweet 
naadhams! They are like tubes transporting nectar to the listener. 

(3) Oh Paadhukais of the Lord , who delights the residents of 
Sriranga KshEthram (Ranga Kshithi RamaNa  paadhAvani) ! As people 
absorb Your naadham  generated by Your Lord's sanchAram on Your back, 
their minds are lost to those sweet naadhams associated with Simha 
gathi (Lion's gait ), Sarpa gathi  et al . Those 
nectarine  "khaLathgaarams steal the minds of all listening to those 
melodies ( KhaLathgAra VyAja amrutha tArA: nikhila jana: chEthAmsi 
krINantha: ). May those sanchaara–janitha flow of amrutham repeatedly 
enter my mind to inspire me ( amrutha dhArA thE vihArA: mama antha: 
muhu: VigAhanthAm ..(V.S).
