This shlokam instructs us that BhagavAn is enriched by His association with BhUmi DEvi.
Oh BhUmi PirAtti (Maadhavee)! In this world, a good tree keeps people comfortable, when they seek its shade during the heat of summer (TaapAn Kshipathy); it showers a rain of fragrant flowers (sumana: gaNAnAm prasavithA); it cools off things adjacent to it through the extension of its merciful shade (pracchayA SeethaLa tala:); it yields nourishing and tasty fruits (PhalAni pradhisan) and is constituted by hundreds of branches (SaakhA sathai: adhigatha:). This good tree is really Your Lord who removes SamsAric tApam of those, who seek His protection; He creates the assemblies of DevAs (Sumana gaNAm prasavithA); through His shade of DayA, He removes the bheethi of samsAram (pracchayA SeethaLa dala:); He blesses His devotees with the desired fruits (PhalAni pradhisan) and He is eulogized by the hundreds of branches of the VedAs (sAkhA sathai: adhigatha:). Your Lord is indeed the Harichandana tree with all of the above attributes. When You of limitless auspicious attributes unite with this tree as a creeper does, it expands the glories of that tree and makes Him enriched (asou Harichandana: Thvath sangamAth labdha pOsha: bhavathy).
