16. அநுக்ஷண ஸமுத்திதே துரித வாரிதௌ துஸ்தரே
யதி க்வசந நிஷ்க்ருதி: பவதி ஸா அபி தோஷ ஆவிலா
தத் இத்தம் அகதௌ மயி ப்ரதிவிதாநம் ஆதீயதாம்
ஸ்வபுத்தி பரிகல்பிதம் கிம் அபி ரங்கதுர்ய த்வயா

anukshaNa samuTthithE dhuritha vaaridhou dhustarE
yadhi kvachana nishkruthir-bhavathy sAapi dhOshAvilA
tadhittham agathou mayi prathividhAnam AadheeyathAm
sva-bhuddhi parikalpitham kimapi Rangadhurya ThvayA

பொருள்– நம்பெருமாளே! என்னுடைய பாவம் என்ற கடலானது, நொடிக்கு நொடி மேலும் மேலும் பொங்கியபடி உள்ளது. இதனை எளிதில் கடக்க இயலாமலும் உள்ளது. எதேனும் பரிகாரம் செய்து கடந்துவிடலாம் என்றால், அதுவும் எனது பாவங்களால் தடுக்கப்படுகின்றது. இப்படியாக வேறு கதியில்லாமல் நான் உள்ளேன். ஆகவே உன்னுடைய ஸங்கல்பம் மூலமாக எனக்கு ஒரு சரியான பரிகாரத்தை நீயே காண்பிக்க வேண்டும்.

Meaning:

Oh Lord of Thiruvarangam! In this sorrowful samsAra MaNDalam, the sins acquired by a samsAri grow every moment like the rising waves of the gigantic Ocean. It is not possible to control their growth thru the proper control of mind and body. When it comes to the ocean of Sins, it is impossible to cross this ocean with appropriate prAyascchittham. Even the performed prAyascchittham is nullified by the accrual of additional sins or by the incorrect performance of that prAyascchittham. The samsAri does not have either the knowledge about the appropriate prAyascchittham or power to execute it correctly. AdiyEn is an ideal example of one such samsAri, who has accumulated a vast assembly of Sins and stand before you in a helpless state. You must use your sankalpam to show me a way to destroy my gigantic bundles of sins and save me.

Comments:

Swamy Desikan compares his sins to a vast ocean (dhuritha Vaaridhi), which is not easy to cross (dustharam) because its waves (the sins) are growing higher and higher every second (anukshaNa samutthitham). There are repentance acts (PrAyascchittham/ nishkruthi) prescribed by Bhagavath Saasthrams to destroy these sins and to get across the forbidding ocean of SamsAram. When that prescribed prAyscchittham is improperly executed, it becomes null and void (kavachana nishkruthi bhavathy yathi, saa api dhOsha AavilA). That brings adiyEn back to square one and makes adiyEn without any recourse (agathi). Under these pitiable circumstances, your sankalpam alone can lead to an appropriate PrAyaschittham for adiyEn (mayi vishayE Sva-Buddhi parikalpitham kimapi prathividhAnam ThvayA AadheeyathAm). Swamy Desikan states that Lord of Srirangam knows what PrAyaschittham (PrathividhAnam) is right for him and begs the Lord to prescribe it.

View or other commentators:

With great nirvEdham, Swamy Desikan appeals to the Lord of Srirangam in this slOkam. “Oh Lord! You bear the heavy burden of Srirangam – in a way, of the whole universe too! You ought to prescribe a unique expiatory procedure that would help Your dependent, myself, to pass the test and cross to the shore of Your feet. I have no wherewithal – intellectual or material – to devise or perform”.
