Dear members,

I have a simple query which some one learned amongst you may be able to 

(1) Who composed the Desikan "taniyan" 

    "vAdidbhava-sirO-bhanga panchA~nana parakrama-ha I
      sriman venkata-natharya chiram vijayatAm bhuvi  II"

(2) What is the rough English translation of it?

(3) Why is it that among SriVaishnava laity and orthodoxy, some  
sections like those belonging to the "munitreeya-sampradAyam" do NOT 
recite this "taniyan" ?

Please enlighten.
