[From Sri Murali Rangaswamy]


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

528. salilam vinyasya thvayi charaNarakshE! nijapadham
     yadhrucChAniShkrAnthE viharathi haroU rangarasikE
     dhishAsoUDhAnaShtoU janayasi thadhA nirBharamilan

Oh Paaduka! when the Lord sets His Feet on You, for a sportive walk, 
You send arrays of rays to all directions to make it appear as though 
all palatial mansions are getting ready for the Lord, with festoons 
and flags!

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

SlOkam 528:

1) UthtamUr Swamy's anubhavam:  Oh PaadhukE! Lord RanganAtha out of  
His enormous  affection for Your companionship decides some times to 
take unplanned journeys. These are spontaneous decisions on His part. 
During those times, the rays from the diamonds adorning You make up 
for the absence of the traditional flags seen on top of the mansions, 
when Your Lord's journeys are announced. You order Your gems to 
extend their rays and form the flags on top of the mansions of 
SrIrangam to make up for the deficencies.

2) SrImath  Andavan's anubhavam: The inner meaning is that a 
fortunate jeevan due to unknown good fortune gains AchArya KatAksham 
and thereafter Bhagavath anugraham . That blessed jeevan's speech and 
guNams are celebrated in all directions. 

3) Lord is fond of Ranga VimAnam ( Ranga rasikan ). Some times, He 
leaves that favorite spot unannounced wearing You and  steps out for 
a joyous journey enjoying  Your company ( Thvayi nija padham saleelam 
vinyasya yadhrucchA-nishkrAnthE viharathi). At those times, You make 
up quickly for the absence of the traditional flags on top of the 
mansions in all directions that are seen, when the Lord's visit is 
known ahead ( Thvam tadhA ashtou disA soudhAn nirbhara miLath  maNi 
cchAyA maayA ghana ghaDitha kEthu vyathikArAn janayasi)..V.S
