I would like to add the 27th sloka from Adi Shankara' s Soundarya Lahari
japo jalpah shilpam sakalamapi mudrA viracanA
gaitih prAdakshinyam ashanAdhyAhuti vidhih
praNAmah samveshah sukhamakhilam AtmArpaNadrshA
saparyAparyAyastava bhavatu yanme vilasitam
AtmArpaNadrshA = having offered my body, mind, prANa and my spirit to you and by the blessing of this knowledge that I am your svarUpa - jIvAtma paramAtma ikyam
jalpah = let all the prattle that is done on vyavahara of the world
japah bhavatu = may it be your mahamantra japa
sakalam shilpamapi = let all the activities performed by the movement of the arma and the legs
mudrAviracanA bhavatu = may it be the ten mudras - samkshobam, vidsAvaNam, AkarshaNam, vasyham, unmAdam, mhAnkusham, kecari, yoni, trikandam
gatih = let even the accidental walking
prAdakshiNyam bhavatu = may it be pradakshiNam circumambulation for you

yat = whatever

tava saparyAparyAyah bhavatu = may it be in the form of Your puja
This is prayer ultimate.
I understand Kanchi ParamAcharya has written exhaustively on Soundarya Lahari in Daivattin Kural book-6 in tamil. Could some one translate the interpretation of this sloka from the book.
