Sri RanganAyakai Nama:

SLOKAM 38

In the previous slOkam (37th), Swamy ParAsara Bhattar referred to the doctrines elaborated by his father (Sri KurEsar's) in his Sri Sthavam. "YasyA Mukham veekshya SARVAM CHA KURVAN HARI:" was KurEsar's mangaLAsAsanam. Sriman NaarAyaNan looks at the Thirumukha MandaLam of His PirAtti, takes the hint from there and takes care of every thing (destruction of Sins and granting of Moksham ). Regarding Sri RanganAyaki's Vaibhavam being beyond the reach of one's words (VaachAm agOcharam) , Kuresar says: " TaavakA: GuNA: VaachAm manasAm cha durgrahathayA khyAthA:"(Your GuNAs knowmn for the fact that theycan not be comprehended by either by Mind or speech). Bhattar echoed this sentiment with " VaachAm abhUmi:(She is beyond all words)".

In today's 38th slOkam , Bhattar describes the special sEvai of Sri RanganAyaki on the 7th day of the NavarAthri Uthsavam at her sannidhi. The slOkam is as follows:

yEkam nanjchya nathikshamam mama param chAkunjchya PaadhAmbujam
madhyE vishtara puNDarIkAmabhayam vinyasya hasthaaambhujam
thvAm pasyEma nishEdhusheem prathikalam kAruNya-kUlankasha-
sphArApaanga tarangamambha ! madhuram mughdham mukham! BibrathIm

Meaning according to Dr.V.N.VedAntha Desikan 

 Oh my Mother! I dare describe Your pose as follows: Your right foot of a lotus is kept hanging below; the left foot is kept folded on to the seat-lotus . The right palm-lotus shows us the gesture of "no fears!". Your face , the eye-glances , which are waves of graciousness dashing against one another , all are ever comforting to us. May we ever incessantly envision this enchanting sight of Yours!

Additional Comments: 

Sri RanganAyaki's adhiadhbhutha sEvai is described here. "yEkam paadhAmbhujam DakshiNam nyamcha prasArya param itharath Vaama PaadhAmbhujam Aakunchya thiryagithi- sEsha:( The right foot is stretching below the Lotus on which She is seated and the left foot is folded and is seen on that aasana padhmam . The lifted lower right hand is displaying the symbol of abhayam (abhaya soochakam). Her glances are filled with KaaruNyam for Her children and they dart about like waves in an ocean of DayA. Those rejuvenating glances uplift us. They are madhuram (sweet), bhOgyam (most enjoyable) and Sundaram (besutiful). Bhattar prays on all of our behalf to Her to bless us with this visva-rakshaNa sEvai for all times to come (Santhatham sEvaneeya:).
