பொருள்–முகுந்தனே! அழகியமணவாளா! இந்தத் திருவரங்கத்தில் உன்னைத் தவிர வேறு எதனையும் விரும்பாமல் இருப்பவர்களது பயத்தை நீ நீக்க வேண்டும். ஸ்ரீவைஷ்ணவம் என்ற செல்வத்தை மேன்மேலும் நீ வளர்க்கவேண்டும். இங்கு உள்ளவர்களுக்கு உண்டாகும் எதிரிகளை நீ வேருடன் நீக்கவேண்டும். தானாகவே தோன்றிய உனது நீண்ட திருமேனியை, நாங்கள் எப்போதும் சேவித்தபடி இருக்க வேண்டும். இப்படியாக நித்யசூரிகள் அங்கு அனுபவிக்கின்ற இன்பத்தை, இங்கு நாங்கள் பெறுவோமாக.


Oh Lord of Thiruvarangam! In your dhivya dEsams reside many ParamaikAnthis, who do not seek any goal other than you. Due to the Muslim invasions, there is oppressive fear in their minds about interruptions in worshipping you to their heart’s content as before. Oh RanganAthA! Please remove their fears! When Sri VaishNavAs are abundant in your dhiva dEsam, it is an indescribable wealth (SrEyas) to Your raajadhAni. Please grow this assembly of BhagavathAs of Yours at Srirangam! Please cut asunder all the amangaLams that stand in the way of Your BhagavathAs enjoying Your Saanidhyam! Oh SarvEswara! You are the One who blesses us with desired phalans in this and the other world. When You grant us the boons of nithya Kaimkaryam here and in Your Supreme abode, we remain contented and tranquil. With Your chasing of our fears resulting from the foreign invaders, we will enjoy Your svayam-vyaktha Archaa ThirumEni to our utmost and serve You to the fullest. As a result of this sukha anubhavam at Srirangam, we shall experience the blessed status of Your Nithya sooris (enjoying their BrahmAnanandham) in Your Supreme abode right here in the BhUlOka Vaikuntam on the banks of Cauvery.


The prayer here is: “Vayam svayam-samudhitham Tava vapu: sadhA niSAmayantha: ThridaSa nirvruthim bhuvi vindhEmahi”. May we be blessed with the BrahmAnandham enjoyed by the nithya sooris right here at Srirangam through the sevai of Your Selfmanifested archai here? To enable the realization of this desired boon, Swamy Desikan begs the Lord to remove the prevailing fears of ParamaikAnthis committed to serving and enjoying the Lord of Srirangam (anitara abhilAsha-spruSAm bhayam Samaya). Please grow the wealth of VaishNava SrI at Srirangam! (Sriyam BahuLaya) Please root out the enemies of Your BhAgavathAs (Sritha vipaksham unmoolaya).

View of other commentators:

In this slOkam, Swamy Desikan responds to the Lord’s question to specify what he wishes to have as boon and gives his list of desired items to enjoy right here in Srirangam prior to the residence in Sri Vaikuntam: (1) Please remove the fear in the minds of ParamaikAnthis over the invasion by the Muslims (2) Please grow the Bhaagavatha Sri at Srirangam (3) Please remove to the root all enemies of those, who have surrendered to You and (4) Please bless us to enjoy Your self-manifested ThirumEni at all times.
