Meaning: (From T.K. Govinda Rao's book)

I salute ("mrokkeda") the enlightened souls ("vidulaku") well versed  ("Ko-vidhulaku") in music ("sangita"), which they have used as a vehicle for worshipping and realising the Lord.

My obeisance ("mrokkeda") to those who are proficient in the Saama Veda ("nigama") which emanated from Lord Shiva ("Mudamuna Shankara"), as a musical outpouring ("krita"). My salutations to the elevated souls ("vidhulaku") who have realized the seven notes - SAPTA SWARA - as the divine emanations from Omkaara  ("Naada-atmaka") -- the primordial eternal sound, Naada, a facet of the transcendental Godhead, BRAHMAN.

My salutations ("vandyulaku mrokkeda") to Lakshmi ("kamala"), Paarvati ("gowri"), Sarasvati ("vaagishwari"), Brahma ("vidhi"), Vishnu ("garuda Dhwaja"), Shiva, Naarada, Indra ("amara-eesha"), Bharata, Kaashyapa, Chandikeshwara ("chandisha"), Anjaneya, Subrahmanya ("Guha"), Vighneshwara ("gajamukhulu"), Maarkandeya ("su-mrukanduja"), Agastya ("kumbhaja"), Tumburu, Someshwara, Sarngadeva, Nandi and others ("pramukhulaku") who know the secret ("marma") of the Bliss Supreme ("sudhaambudhi") -- Brahmaananda.
