composed by Sri Pillai Lokacharyar on Swamy Desikan:

seeronRu thooppul ThiruvEmkatamudaiyaan/
paar onRach chonna pazhamozhiyuL/
OronRu thaanE amaiyAdhO dhAraNiyil vaazhvaarkku/

Even a single sloka/prabhandham of Thoopul ThiruvEmakatamudiayaan's (Swamy
Desikan's) is adequate for getting salvation and blessed with the eternal world.

getting a certificate from Srimad Poundarikapuram Andavan Ashramam

/she will be given a "gaNTA maNi".
