Sri RanganAtha Mahishyai Nama:

Dear BhakthAs :

In the fifteenth slOkam , Sri Bhattar points out
the assembly of the greatest wealth and auspiciousness 
in this world are but a miniscule portion of Sri RanganAyaki"s
immeasurable wealth and auspiciousness. 

The fifteenth slokam carrying these thoughts is as follows:

aakugrAma niyamakAdhapi vibhOrAsarva nirvAhakAth
  Eisvaryam YadhihOtthara-GuNam Srirangabharthu: priyE!
tungam mangaLm ujjvalam garibhavath puNyam puna: paavanam
  Dhanyam yatthadhasccha veekshaNabhuvastE panchashA viprusha:

(Meaning by Dr.V.N.VedAntha Desikan ): Oh Dear Consort 
of RanganAthA ! Starting from the headship of a cluster of
villages , going to the seat of BrahmA , who presides over
a vast world ,

the affluence and power authority ,
the mammothness of Mount Meru and the like ,
the lustrous gem stones of great value,
the heavy HimAlayAs and similar mountains,
the potent rituals coming under the class of DharmAs ,
the holy ganges , similar rivers and centers which confer sanctity,

and ,in short , all things coming under the category
of lucky , luck-conferring and blessed ones--

all are but equivalent to five or six drops in 
the fountain flow (KatAksha PravAham )from you. 

AdiyEn's observations:
Here , Bhattar praises the VaNmai (power ) of 
the KatAksha VeekshaNyam of Sri RanganAthan's 
dear consort . Bhattar , who wrote a brilliant 
commentary on Sri VishNu Sahasra Naamams might have
the following Sri LakshmI Sahasra Naamams in mind,
to bring out these thoughtss while he composed
this slOkam :
