Dear Friends,

I fully endorse Sri KalaLe's position on Swami Desikan's approach to 
Prapatti. Sri KalaLe has very eloquently made a case for the role of 
Karma while aspiring for Moksha. Sri KalaLe states that Moksha is 
Prarthana Purvaka. This is brilliantly reflected in Swami Desikan's 
Nyasa Dashakam in the salutation "VishvAsa PrArthanA Purvam Atma RakshAbharam 
TvayI". Another Shlokam from the Bhagavad Gita which tends to support 
Sri KalaLe's position is 

Samam SarvEshu Bhuteshu Tishtantam Parameshwaram Vinashyatsva Vinashyantam 
Yah Pashyati Sa Pashyati.

Namo Narayana,

Muralidhar Rangaswamy
