As highlighted by Sriman Sadagopan, there are multiple ways to learn 
Swami Desikan Sookthis some of which is highlighted below for the 
benefit of all bhagavathas interested to learn with contact details. 

1. Weekly Sthothram & Prabhandham classes on the tele-bridge (free) 
with the comfort of learning from your home with a teacher. 
Information can be obtained at We have 
completed teaching 5 prabhandhams and 5 Desika Sthothrams in the 
class. Bhagavathas of all ages (including those attending school :) ) 
are also welcome for this class.

2. Online Santhai materials (as taught in the traditional class in 
Saturdays' tele-bridge) in real-audio format. You can learn at your

7. There are many knowledgeable bhagavathas in various areas thorought 
out the world who I am sure would be willing to teach and impart our 
sampradayam to seeking bhagavathas and we should utilize their 
proximity to us to our benefit.
