To my knowledge, Sri Periyavaachchaan Pillai did not write a commentary on the
entire Ramayana of Valmiki. He commented on selected slokas. If my memory is
correct it is called Thanisloki Vyaakhyaanam. Sri Puthur Krishnaswami Iyengar
has published this with his own explication. (It is published in 2 Volumes.
For a while one of the volumes was out of print. I believe it has since been
re-printed.) The book is both a literary feast and treatise on the philosophy
of Sri Vaishnavam.
