English annotation by Vishnudut1926: "Greatness of Sharanagati" is the exceptionally laudable book.

Dr. C. Umakantham writes about Sharanagati not only from Shree Ramanuja Sampradaya point of view, but within the frames of Upanishadic and Puranic outlook as well.

A lot of Pramanas from Upanishads and Puranas are listed.

The book is flawlessly balanced: theoretical parts of the book are sequenced by distinguished practical explanations, dwelling on such practical matters as Prapanna, Abhigamana, Ijya and etc.

Annotation by Vishnudut1926: I have been studying "Satwata-Tantra" in 2010, so to my dismay I don't remember the main nods of narration. 

I do remember that Adhyaya 6 devoted to "1000 Names of Shree Krishna" (and I even remember some Shree Krishna Names from this Adhyaya). 

The last Adhyaya (Adhyaya 9) should be memorized, because in this Adhyaya Shiva tells why He has concealed the knowledge about Bhagavan Shree Vishnu and fabricated tamasika-shastras and advaita-shastras. 

This Adhyaya perfectly correlates with those Chapters from "Shree Padma-Purana" and "Shree Vishnu-Purana" in which Shiva tells about false religious doctrines of Kali-Yuga.

Annotation by Vishnudut1926: "Sanat-Kumara-Samhita" is the Agama of crucial significance for Gaudiya and Nimbarka-Sampradaya, because Shreemati Radharani Devi and Shree Krishna are remarkably extolled in this part of "Pancaratra".

There are crucial Dhyanas and Mantras in "Sanat-Kumara-Samhita".

Some abridged English translations of "Sanat-Kumara-Samhita" can be encountered in the Internet, but all of them lack certain Adhyayas.

This Sanskit 1969 edition is the intergate version from Adyar Library.

This  particular  edition  of  "SHREE VISHNU-PURANA"  includes  a  commentary  called  "Vishnuchittiyam"  by  Vishnuchitta,  who  is  also  known  as  'Engalalvan'  in  Tamil.  

Vishnuchitta  lived  from  1097  to  1197  CE.  He  was  the  disciple  of  "Tirukurugai  Piraan  Pillaan"  the  Jnana  Putra  or  spiritual  son  of  Swami  Ramanujacharya.  

He  composed  about  half  a  dozen  works  elucidating  the  philosophical  works  of  Swami  Ramanujacharya.  Only the  Vishnuchittyam  is  extant  today.
