Swami Desika's works
(by Sri U Ve Anbil Ramaswamy)


Throughout his works- whether small or short, whether extensive and elaborate, whether poem or drama or Vyakhyanam - the one thread that runs through is his insatiable dedication in maintaining Ramanuja Darsanam. With his inscrutable insight into the various realms of knowledge and incisive logical talents in demolishing the failings of other schools of thought he could have built a new system of his own. Any other Acharya of his standing would have easily bungled into this trap. But, his conviction that Ramanujas system was not only ancient but also approved by Poorva Acharyas helped him avoid this and he strengthened the edifice built by Bhagavad Ramanuja.
