SHORT DESCRIPTION OF BOOK:
Our Ramanuja siddhantam unequivocally states that parabrahma-vastu is SrI-lakshmI-nArayaNAtmakam. The divine couple together make for a single Supreme entity – “ubhayAdhiShThAnaM chaikaM SEShitvam”. lakShmIpatitvaM is an asAdhAraNa-lakShaNam of the Lord. These topics have been elucidated, expounded and established firmly by several masters of yore in their celebrated treatises. One such work is “Lakshmi-upayatva-deepah”, composed by the 22nd pattam Acharya SrinivAsa parakAla swAmy of the ancient SrI-brahmatantra-swatantra-
Earlier, a century ago, this monumental work was published in telugu lipi during the times of the 32nd pattam AchArya Sri VAgISa brahmatantra swatantra parakAla swAmy. It is indeed the sankalpam of the AchArya parampara that the reprint of this work in sanskrit lipi along with a commentary has been accomplished under the auspices of Srimadabhinava vAgISa brahmatantra swatantra parakAla swAmy.
Upon the niyamanam of our prakrtam AchArya, SrImadabhinava vAgISa brahmatantra swatantra parakAla swAmy, this ancient work has been provided with a scholarly commentary in tamizh titled “Lakshmi kataaksham” by SrI u. vE. payyambADi cheTlUr SrIvatsAnkAchArya swAmy. It is indeed the paramAnugraham of our AchArya paramparA that this rare SrIsUkti has come to light along with an easily understandable commentary. The commentary in tamizh by SrI SrIvatsAnkAchArya swAmy is very comprehensive. The complex aspects from tarka-vyakarana-meemamsa streams have been conveyed by the author in a very simple way making it appealing for beginners as well. The work is replete with references to SrIbhAShya and SrImadrahasyatrayasara. The book comes as a fine supplement to the studies on SArIraka SAstra.
