Dear Sriman Sundararajan Swamy:

I am very happy to know that you wish to
look deeper into the contributions of 
Sri Koora-NaarAyaNa -Jeeyar 's life and Sri Sookthis.

The original sources are at Adayar Library .
The Sanskrit Academy of Melkote is another
source.The Anandaasrama Sanskrit series is
yet another source. 

Dr.V.N.S.N. Ragahavan of Vaishnava Dept and 
the author of the monograph , "History of 
VisishtAdhvaitha literature ( His Ph.D Thesis )
and other members of the dept there could provide
valuable insights.

Various AchArya paramparai literature was another 
valuable source for me . 

It will be wonderful to have Sri Sudarsana Sathakam
in the Text and audio form for all of our use.

Thanks again for your interest ,
Daasan, V.Sadagopan

KuranArAyabNar.   The second Jeeyar has also written a commentary for
IsAvAsyOpanishad following the lines of Swamy Desikan (1268-1369 CE).
