May the glorious Sri Venkatanatha, the greatest of teachers of Vedanta, and 
the lion among poets and debaters, reside forever in my heart.

Today is Purattaasi ThiruvONam. Swamy Desikan's Thirunakshathram (also of 
ThiruvEmkatamudaiyaan Sri Srinivasa PerumAL). Swamy Desikan's concern for 
the entire humanity irrespective of differences of caste, creed, or religion 
is amply demonstrated by the following phrases found in his variuos 
sthOthrams and works.

1. -parasara hithaishiNAm parisarEshu mAm varthaya - May I be allowed to
live in a place filled with people who thinks of natural goodwill for each 
other.
2. -SrEyasE jagathAmEthath SrImadhashtabhujAshtakam- May this
ashtabhujAshtakam spread benefits to the entire world.
3. -anasUyubhirAdharENa bhAvyA- With devotion and free from jealousy
4. -DhEhaLeesasthuthi phalsruthi slOkam- May this dhEhaLeesa sthuthi grant 
all wishes to us who have desires for all wrodly things but are miserly too, 
thus facing untold misery.
5. sarasijanilayaayaa: sthOthramEthath paTantha:|
sakalakuSala sImA: saarvahoumA bhavanthi: || (SrIsthuthi)
All those who read this hymn on Her who resides on the Lotus will reap all 
benefits and become emperors of their domain.
6. srEyasE bhUyasE sathAm kruthEyam- (ShodasAyudha sthOthram) Written for 
the benefit of all good men

7. Swamy Desikan also has very beautifully written for our enlightenment
(in SaaranishkarshAdhikAram of Srimad Rahasyathrayasaaram)

asaaramalpasaaram cha saaram saaratharam thayajEth |
bhajEth saarathamam SaasthrE rathnAkar ivAmrutham ||

One should ignore what has no value; what is only of slight value; and even 
what is even more valued.. It is only what is THE MOST VALUABLE that one 
should prefer in the scriptures.., like ambrosia in the ocean.

(above is from the write up by SRi MK Srinivasan Swamy from Vedantha 
Desika-special number)

How apt and how enlighetened we would be if we follow Acharya's advice,
Verses and writings of Acharyan..
