Padhuka Sahasram-456
Date: Thu Oct 18 2001 - 04:12:16 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

456. vakuLaDharathanusthvam samhithAm yAmapashya:
     shruthipariShadhi thasyA: sOuraBham yOjayanthi
     prathipadharamaNIyA: pAdhukE! thE ninAdhA:

Oh Paaduka! You were already gladly fragrant with contact of the 
lotus Feet of the Lord. The sound that You produce at every step 
appears to merge the flavour of the works (of Nammazhwar) which 
Dramida Veda You Yourself 'saw and revealed' once early, with the 
Veda now.


(The Vedas, both in Sanskrit and Tamil, merge in the Feet of the Lord-
meaning, thereby, that the ultimate is the Lord,t hat He is the 
subject of all Vedic knowledge).

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

SlOkam 456:

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

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! You have taken
the form of Swamy NammAzhwAr on earth and blessed the world with
ThiruvAimozhi , which has the fragrance of the Lord's feet since
You are adorning those feet always. The Naadham generated by You
during Your travel with the Lord incorporates the fragrance of
ThiruvAimozhi on the VedAs,which follow You both.This way ,
the meaning of th Veda manthrams are rendered clearer . Tthe Vedas
recieve help in this manner from You.

(2)Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE! when one hears
Your Naadham , it is clear that the Vedhaas repeat the upadEsam
of Yours that the Lord is the Sarva Jagath KaaraNan and Sarva
Loka Rakshakan.

(3) Swamy Desikan salutes the Paadhukais as the form of
Swamy NammAzhwAr ( VaguLadhara tanu: Thvam).During every step ,
those Paadhukais generate delectable Naadham ( Prathipadham
RamaNIyA: ninAdhA: tE). Those Paadhukais have the fragrance of
the Lotus Feet of the Lord ( Hari CharaNa SarOja sammOdhithAyA:
tE prathipadham). They evoke the fragrance of Vedams , whose
meanings are incorporated in the ThiruvAimozhi Samhithai and
the naadham emanating from their movement join the assembly of
the VedhAs to bless them with a divine vaasanai(Sourabham)..(V.S).
