SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

449. mugDhasya hantha BhavathIm sthuvathO mamaIthA
     nyAkarNya nUnamayaThAyaThajalpithAni
     itTham vadha thvamithi shikshayithum praNAdhAn 
     manjUnudhIrayasi mADhavapAdhukE! thvam

Oh Paaduka! The artless person that I am, composed these works in a 
disarranged manner which, You heard and felt worthwhile to applaud 
and correct, here and there, by saying "Do it in this manner",-which 
actually is the sound coming from You.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! Just as You make 
the Vedic scholars think about Vedic passages as a result of 
listening to Your naadham , You seem to instruct me on how to improve 
my feeble but well-meant attempt to praise You through this effort of 
mine". Here , Swamy Desikan points out humbly that he is not 
qualified to engage in composing the verses in praise of the 
magnificient glory of the PaadhukAs and yet he persists because of 
his intense desire to offer homage to Them. He says that the Naadham 
emanating from the PaadhukA appears like helpful instructions on how 
to construct the verses without any mistakes.

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! Listening to Your 
dhivya Naadham , it appears that you hear my sthOthram full of errors 
and then say "do it this way , do n't do it this way" and instruct me 
about corrections that need to be made. The inner meaning is that any 
one , who recites ThiruvAimozhi with full knowledge of the meanings 
of the paasurams will gain understanding of how one should reflect on 
the Lord and how one should praise him .

(3) Oh PaadhukE ! You hear this fool's prattlings about Your glories 
( BhavathIm sthuvatha: mugdhasya mama yEthAni ayaTAyaTa jalpithAni 
aakarNya ) and correct me with Your sweet naadham by pointing out : " 
Please do not do this way , but do this way ".
