Bhakti List Archives. From the Bhakti List Archives V. To the best of my knowledgethere is no English rendering-cum gloss on RPS today. ActuallyI am using them as references and blending their complimenatary points of views to pay reverence to the two AchArya ParamparAs and their sampradhAic views and presenting them in a way that will be easier for us to appreciate the extraordinary genius of Swami Desikan and his reverence for NammAzhwAr. If Lord RanganAthA willsthe task of releasing these postings in a cogent format with slokams in the DevanAgari script and the careful transliteraton of the Roman alphabets with diacriticals as well as inclusion of the aruLiccheyal pAsurams in Tamil would all fall in place.
I have completed the first draft of translations of the verses already. The version included in the current postings constitute the next version that blends the AaNdavan Aasramam view points with those of Uttamoor SwamigaL's sampradhAyam.
It is going to take some time to cover them to the best of my ability. Sadagopan would know whether any English rendering-cum-gloss of SrI pAdukA-sahasram has been published by anyone so far.
If negative, I wd request SrI Sadagopan to consider publishing one, by making use of his comprehensive postings to the 'bhakti list'. The book format would, of course, reorganising the material which we have been enjoying on our 'list'.
The SlOkam shd invariably be in dEvanAgari script, with a careful transliteration in Roman alphabet with diacriticals, and any aruLiccheyal pASurams that are cited shd be printed in Tamil script. These are DTP days and this trilingual effort would be worth it!
Sundara Rajan at Memphis.The Knight tour is a mathematical problem where through a sequence of moves according to the rules of chess, a knight placed on any square, moves across the board visiting each square exactly once.
One of the earliest paths suggested by Euler is represented below- where starting from the 1 in the corner, the knight traces a path in the order of the numbers- similar to a connect-the-dots problem. Sri Vedanta Dasika and the Paduka Sahasram. The Paduka Sahasram,is an epic poem of verses praising the footwear of Lord Ranganatha of Srirangam written by a mulitilingual poet Sri Vedanta Desika, who lived in India, during the 14th and 15th century.
It is said that by the age of 20, Vedanta Dasika had mastered most of the scriptures, and was invited to polemics and debates held across the country.
He also wrote commentaries on a lor of scriptures and was considered to be an authority on Vedanta. It is believed that the Paduka Sahasram was written by him one night, when he was challenged to compose verses on Lord Ranganatha before day-break.
The work has one shloka, that actually solves the Knight tour problem. In the solution presented by him, there are 2 sanskrit verses; where the first verse is written in order, in the squares of the chessboard; and a knight tour of this square leads to the second verse!
O sacred sandals of the Brahman, you are always adorned by those who have committed unpardonable sins; you remove all that is sorrowful and unwanted; you create a musical sound; be pleased and lead me to the feet of Lord Rangaraja. And the knight tour of the above verse will look like this. The sandals which protect those who shine by their right attitude, whose place is the center of the blissful rays, which destroy the melancholy of the distressed, whose radiance brings peace to those who take refuge in them, which move everywhere, -may those golden and radiating sandals of the Brahman lead me to the feet of Lord Rangaraja.
Remember this work was written in the 14th and 15th century, a long time before Euler was even born. The verses reflect the sheer genius of the poet : - Coming up with two verses, one derived from the other that too by a knight tour! It is remarkable the way early Indians came up with extremely accurate findings in the fields of science, astronomy and math.
This is something the present generations could, and should perhaps use, to derive inspiration from :.

Why did he place them on the golden throne? An amazing feat. Why do Tamil Hindus worship shoes of great people like Kanchi Shankaracharya and take replicas home and put them in the Puja room? No, it is not correct. Hindus are humble. They see divinity in each and everything.
Before stepping out of the bed and putting their feet on the ground, they pray for pardon from the goddess of earth- Bhuma Devi. It is in the Pratasmarana hymn. Before tilling the land they ask for pardon for digging the earth. Before stepping into water source for bath or cleaning they worship the river or sea.
In short, for Hindus everything is God. Whether it is music or dance, whether it is the special festival dinner or the Rangoli Kolam in Tamil drawn, they see God in it. They feel humble when they think about what God had provided them. They use everything to the minimum and with respect. That is how we see the shoes of God. Once you realise that there is one who is mightier than you, you then behave. You help others by sharing everything God had given you. The Isavasya Upanishad says:.
Everything animate or inanimate that is within the universe is controlled and owned by the Lord. One should therefore accept only those things necessary for himself, which are set aside as his quota, and one should not accept other things, knowing well to whom they belong.Oh Paaduka of the Lord who is meant by the word 'Sat'! Special Notes by V. Sadagopan V. S : SlOkam and These two slOkmas are to be read together as one set. One has to position the 32 aksharams of the first slOakam in four rows and follow it up with the 32 aksharams of the second slOkam in the same manner.
