Date: Thu Sep 27 2001 - 04:20:47 PDT


SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

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

443. BhOgAya dhEvi! BhavathI maNipAdharakshE!
     padhmAsahAyamaDhirOpya BhujangathalpE
     vishvasya gupthimaDhikruthya vihArahInA
     vAchamyamA kimapi chinthayathIva kAryam

Oh Manipaaduka! Having let the Lord sit on the couch of Adisesha for 
His pleasure, You reitre from movement and melody-singing. You 
perhaps cogitate on some move designed to deal with world-protection.
Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

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

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: When one has to execute major
Projects , one has to concentrate and think about them . There should 
be no disturbance or distraction at these times. In this context , 
Swamy Desikan inquires whether the Lord's Paadhukais have become 
quiet suddenly to reflect on the serious matter of protecting the 
universe. Swamy Desikan says: " Oh Mother ! It appears that  You have 
helped Sri RanganAthA and MahA Lakshmi ascend their bed of AadhisEshA 
and stopped Your movements thereafter . Adiyen wonders whether You 
have become silent to reflect on the ways to protect the universe and 
its citizens from any harm that might come to them .

(2) Srimath Andavan's anubhavam: Oh PaadhukE ! You help the Lord reach
His bed at the aasthAnam and then become silent . Your silence 
suggests That You are deeply absorbed in thoughts about the Loka 

(3) The concerns of the Paadhukais about the well being of the 
suffering people of the world ( Visvasya gupthim adhikruthya ) is 
reflected in its becoming silent after bringing the Lord to His bed 
of AadhisEshan ( PadhmA sahAyam  Bhujanga TalpE bhOgAya adhirOpya  ). 
The Paadhukais reflect on how to save the samsAris from their 
sufferings ( Visvasya gupthim adhikruthya kimapi kaaryam 
chinthayathee iva)(V.S)
