Dear Sri Lakshmi,

Ramanuja dayA pAThram taniyan (invocatory verse) is on Swamy Vedantha 
Desikan. It is composed by Sri Brahma Tantra Svatantra Swamy (Swamy's 
Disciple)

The taniyans for Swamy Desikan are:

RaamAnjua DayA Paathram Jn~Ana VairAgya BhUshaNam
Srimath VenkatanAthAryam VandhE VedAntha Desikam

--Sri Brahma Tantra Svatantra Swamy

Srimath kavi-thArkika Simha SwaminE nama:
Sri VedAnthAchArya Varya Prabhave Nama:

--From Sri KumAra NayinArAcchAr Swamy (Swamy Desikan's son and disciple)

Sri PiLLai LokAcchAr's Tribute to Swamy Desikan..

Ramanuja dayA pAthram taniyan's meaning is:

I pay obeisance to and salute Swamy Sri Vedantha Desikan- AchArya Sri 
Venkatanatha, the recipient of the blessings of Sri AthrEya Ramanujar, and 
who has jnAnam, vairAgyam as bhUshaNam (ornaments);

Though Ramanuja refers to AthrEya Ramanujar (Swamy's Acharya), traditions 
record that Sri Bhagawath Ramanujacharya also can be referred to, as Swamy 
must have been truly blessed by SrI Ramanujacharya too naturally.

Since Sri Brahma Tantra Svatantra Swamy composed this taniyan, it should be 
during or just after Swamy Desikan's period (1268-1369 A.D)

Trust it answers your query.
