DayaaSathakam By Swamy Desikan’s





This stotram celebrates the auspicious quality (Kalyana Guna) of Mercy (Dayaa) of the  Lord of Thiruvenkatam. Of All the Kalyana Gunaas of Venkataadhri Sekhara Vibhu, His  Dayaa is the most important one for the uplift of the Chetanaas. The concept of Prapatthi and  Thiruvenkatamudayaan’s Dayaa to realize the fruits of that Prapatthi is the subject of Sri  Venkatanatha Kavi in this “Satakam”.

The structure of this stotram containing 108 slokas (one for each of the Divya Desa  Archaa Murthys of Sriman Narayana perhaps) is extraordinarily impressive even by Swami Desikan’s standards of poetic excellence. Our Acharya has used ten plus different meters to  compose the ten groups of slokas, each of which houses “ ten” slokas.
