>Dear Sri Sadagopan,
>Your note on the light of the Ikshvaku dynasty, inspired me to

>two parts. The first part covers instances from the Ramayana until 
>Bharata's SharaNagati. The remainder of the Ramayana is covered in 
>the second part. 
>The Katha Sangraha extols Rama- the supreme righteous warrior
>(Satya Parakrama), the epitome of truth (this mirrors Swami Desikan's 
>Dashavatara Stotram salutation "DharmO VigrahavAn"), his eternal 
>association with Sita Piratti (this is described in the salutations 
>"Nityam PrANa SamAhita" and "SitApyanugatA Ramam Shashinam RohinI 
>Yatha"), the embodiment of KalyaNa Gunams (TvamEvam GuNa Sampannam is 
>the salutation referring to this aspect), firm and unflinching desire to 
>uhold his father's promise (Sa Satya VachanAt Raja Dharma PashEna 
>Samyyata: is the Katha Sangraha salutation. This is closely related 
>to Swami Desikan's Mahavira Vaibhavam salutation "Pitru Vachana 
>Palana Pratijna VagnyAta YouvvarAjya") and Bharata's SharaNagati 
>at the Lotus feet of the Lord (the saltuation "PadhukE ChAsya RAjyAya 
>NyAsam Dattva Punah Punaha" reflects the Mahavira Vaibhavam salutation

>I can make available part 1 of the Katha Sangraha for those desirous
