Sri sthuthi


This sthothrawas also composed in Srirangam when a brhmachari came to Cdesika

and expressed his inabilty to get enough money for getting married. Desika took

him to the sannidhi of Sriranganayaki and composed this sthothra then and there

and there was a shower of gold coins which he gave to the brahmachari. This is a

similar incident as in the life of Sankara who produced the shower of gold

nellikkais (emblic myrabolans) to help a poor brahmin lady who felt sad that she

did not have anything to give him for bhisha except a rotten nellikkai.It shows

the power of saint devotees.
