The key words here are : “ Thvam Bhava Jaladhi gathAnAm pOtha pAthree bhavithree”.(You have become the boat to ferry the chEthanams across that are being tossed about in the ocean of SamsAram). Assuring these distressed souls’ safe journey, You transport them to the other shore of SamsAric ocean, Namely, the Lord of ThiruvEnkatam.
It is common that boats give a ride to those who get tossed around in the sea. The skilled boatsman knows the way to the safe shore. His boat is firmly secured with strong ropes. In a similar way, Dayaa Devi, You serve as a safe boat to those struggling in the dangerous waters of SamsAram. The GuNams of Jn~Anam and Sakthi of the Lord of ThiruvEnkatam act as the ropes binding You. The sadhAchAryAs, who are proficient in the UpAyams (Prapatthi,Bhakthi Yogams) serve as the boatsmen. These AchAryAs bring the ChEthanams with Yourhelp to Your Lord at ThiruvEnkatam. He is the safe shore to be attained. Therefore, You serve as the important boat in this matter of rescuing and delivering the samsAris at Your Lord’s feet to enjoy MokshAnandham.
