(w to w) He Ramanujarya -Come Ramanujacharya!, Vacham agochara maha guna immeasurable, i.e. attributes are not countable, such greatness of attributes possessed, desikagraya Kuradinatha – the great Acharya Kuresa, gathitha -in his Panchasthavee etc., akila naichyapatram – for the low status, esha aham eva –I am the only one. ethruchaha punaha –Such other person who is, jagathe –in this world, na asthe -not at all available. Thath -for such reason, thethu karuna eva – in the matter of showering your unlimited kindness, math gathihi -among all other sinners, bhavathi -for myself it is a refuge to uplift from the sin.
(Commentary) Having informed such sins of him, and thought not to reveal the small matter as Purvacharyas who admitted in their texts about their limitless sins that are available with him. The adjective word of Kuresa, viz. vachamagochara mahaguna means really he has no faults that has to be informed for us only. When such is the case, these faults are available with me as mentioned in the word akilanaichyapatram ahameva. The word Desika Agrrya means Kuresa, who is Head, among the coronated persons in the propagation of Vedanta Sastras. One can think of the Sloka Adhyam Yatindra Sishyanam Agrayam Vedanta Vedinam which means that we meditate Kuresa, who is the main disciple among the disciples of Sri Ramanuja and one who knows Vedas. It is to be remembered the sayings of Kuresa who enumerated mistakes in him in the Sloka 84 of Sri Vaikunta stavam. Kuresa describes the misktakes that are surrounded by him as follows: Alas! Alas! I am doomed, I am corrupted! Fie upon me! What have I said falling into delusion? Oh! How can a sinner like me deserve even so much as to remember You who is the abode of auspicious qualities untouched by defects?
