Sri:

SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

SrimatE NigamAnta MahadesikAya Namaha,

Dear Bhaktas,

On this most sacred day, doubly-blessed on account of the Tirunakshatram of 
Swami Desikan and Lord Srinivasa, Adiyen wishes
to reflect on the limitless compassion of this great Acharya and the Lord of 
Seven Hills, through the Daya Shatakam salutations
"PrapadyE Tam Girim PrAya:", "Yan MUrthyA sharkarayitum", "VigAhE Teertha 
BahuLam", "ManyE Mata Jada Iva SutE VatsalA Maa drushEtvam", "Srinivasasya 
Drushtim", "KaruNe NishkaruNa" "Aham Asmi Aparadha Chakravarthi" "Jagati 
Hitamnanastvayi Bharanyasa nAdadhikam",
"HEtunA sethunA", "satapatala BheeshanE", "Sakrut avEkshanAth",
"Jagati gItayA Andham Tama:", "Veena Visheshamiva Venkata Shaila
natha:" and "Kallola Kolahala:".

Each of these salutations conveys with conusmmate effect, a
special facet of Daya Devi of the Lord of Seven Hills. Adiyen is
extremely thankful for the assurances provided in verses 106-108 of this 
most majestic stuthi, which emphasizes the elevated role of Daya and her 
importance in granting refuge to a Prapanna. This stuthi has
been greatly embellished by the outstanding Anubhavams of Mahans like
H.H. Srimad Andavan Swami of Srimad Poundarikapuram Ashramam, U.Ve. Sri 
Ramadesikachariar Swamin, and U.Ve. Dr. V.N.
Vedanta Desikan Swamin.  This stuthi is also known to have been
extremely special to H.H. Abhinava Desika Sri Uttamoor Veeraraghavachariar 
Swamin.

It is extremely heartening to see the commencement of several Kaimkaryams 
for Swami Desikan and Our Lord take place on this most
auspicious day. Adiyen cannot find sufficient words to praise Smt. Praveena 
for her outstanding Kaimkaryam of a daily capsule on the
greatness of Swami Desikan.

KavitArkika SimhAya KalyaNa GuNashAlinE
SrimatE VenkateshAya Vedanta GuravE Namaha,

Namo Narayana,

Adiyen,

SriMuralidhara Dasan
