Shri Prasanna Shreenivasa dasa gurubhyoh namah!
O akshara, I bow down to you in complete surrender. You are eternal and imperishable in all aspects. You are hence called as the Omnipresent ,Changeless one. You sport about in the flawless place known as Vaikunta , being completely immersed in bliss within Yourself, not needing any external source of happiness. You are the controller and sustainer of all . You are the controller of Lakshmi and she is inseparable from You at all times and places. You are called “shrIsha”, and she pervades completely in You .Here both the references to Him as the Lord of Shri as well ,being pervaded by Shri seem contradictory. The one who pervades is Superior as that would be the base and support for the other. But having already declared Hari as Superior and constant in this Superiority, Dasaru is making something else clear by saying,”ninnalli shritatva OtaprOtavAdige”
The Shrutis declares that the entire world is created by the Chit Prakruti Lakshmi through the vibration of the three gunas which are completely under Her control. The three gunas and their abhimAni Lakshmi are in need of the support of Paramatma to do this. And Paramatma’s will and His sustainance of Lakshmi in the creation of this world is clearly established by this sentence. The BrihadAranyakOpanishad says
ekO devah sarvabhUtEshu gUDah sarva sAkshi
sarva vyApi ,sarvalOkadhivAsa…….
Here the words ‘sarvvvyApi” and “sarvalOkAdhivAsa” confirm the omnipresence of the Lord as well as the fact that He is the sustaining power and is the one who exists at all times.
Your state of imperishability is constant and unchanging for all time and in all attributes. You ,being free from such destruction of any kind are the master of the subtle worlds like Vaikunta-free from defects and enjoy bliss without the aid of any external agencies. You are blissful by nature and it is Your inherent nature. You grace the souls to become free from destruction and then enable them to enjoy their inherent bliss in these subtle places which are flawless.
You are the only support for everyone and everything-sarvaadhara. This one word clearly gives us a picture and finality of His omnipotence. He bears everything and makes them exist.

He is inner energiser , propeller, controller and the one who inspires the jiva in all its actions. There is herarchy of beings who maybe the energises and controllers at various levels, but Hari is one who is the Final One and who has no energiser or controller. He exists independent of anyone or anything.
He is the sustainer of the earth, its rivers, its mountains , it flora and fauna, its beings and every thing to the most minute atoms too. One may ask, what is there in an atom or a river which is lifeless for it be sustained. It could exist without such support. But such is not the case . Atoms are composed of even smaller particles and they are held in place by an inter-atomic forces. The energy for these forces is provided by the infinite energy who designed these structures, their interconnectivity, their inter-dependences etc and keeps these modes intact during creation. See the link below for more information .
This center of gravity, the spinning of the earth and its revolution , the constant stream of solar energy from the sun and many more absolutely wonderful processes go on around us without us, even recognizing them as something spectacular and wonderful. It is the great leela of the Lord who pervades everywhere along with His consort Rama.
Kanaka Dasaru says ,
EtanIga vAsudeva I samasta lOkadoDeya
You, O Vasudeva are the master of the entire universe.
Coming back to the last line of the poetic bhashya….
shrIsha, ninnali Ota prOtavAgihudu shrItatva
Since Rama is also with Him at all times and places, is she independent of His support? To that Dasaru answers, “He is the Lord of Ramaa devi too.Her very existence is supported by Him.”

He pervades everywhere and is superior to all the perishable beings as well as the imperishable Lakshmi.
