Is not Swami Desikan normally considered an amSa
of the ghanTa (bell or in Tamil, thirumaNi) of
Thirupathi Srinivasa PerumaaL? This is what his
son declares in the Vedanta Desika MangalaaSaasana
stotram.

Kulasekhara Alvar is considered an amSa of the 
kaustubha maNi. I have not heard Desikan equated 
to this jewel. Are there any references to this?
