RE: [SriRangaSri] Fwd: A question on Swami Desikan's biography

Interesting question. Although it appears he did not compose (m)any openly,
I guess he probably continued his works secretly to avoid unnecessary
attention from the marauding Muslim forces. Sri AbheetiSthavam might be just
one such.

Therefore, my take is it was a tactical decision by Swami Desikan to
temporarily limit 'publishing' and maintain a low profile, while
contemplating/researching for his later works, planning for setting- up Sri
ParaKala Matam, bringing up Sri Sudarasana Suri's sons, etc.
