English annotation by Vishnudut1926: "Shree Vachana-Bhushanam" by OM VishnuPad Shree Pillai LokAcharya is the main Grantha of Tenkalai (The Southern Branch of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya). 

I was very much amazed noticing that the translation had been made not by a representative of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya, but by a western indologist (Dr. Robert C. Lester from Colorado).

Usually I shun and avoid the translations of western indologists, because Sampradayik translations must be made by native Hindu representatives of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya. 
In spite of western origin this translation is perfect and it was made with the assistance of Sri Agnihotram Ramanuja Tatacharya and prof. A. Tiruvengadathan (Dr. Robert C. Lester communicated with both of them in Madras as the foreword to the translation says).
I recommend to study this translation with the classic English translation by Sri SatyaMurthi Swami of Gwalior, the scan be found here - http://vishnudut1926.blogspot.ru/2016/02/srivachana-bhusahanam-by-sri-pillai.html

Some perfect Hindi editions of "Shree Vachana-Bhushanam" exist too, I will add them to my E-Library later.

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: This is one of the most precious acquisitions for me! 

No need in annotation from me, because all the Granthas by Shree Parashara Bhatta belong to the eternal classics of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya.

"Shree Lakshmi-Stotram" composed by AnandaTirtha (Shree MadhvAcharya)...

IF YOU LOVE RARE STOTRAS DEVOTED TO SHREEMATI MAHALAKSHMI-DEVI, THEN "SHREE LAKSHMI-STOTRAM" WRITTEN BY MADHVACHARYA (ANANDATIRTHA) WILL BE ONE OF THE MOST CHERISHED DISCOVERIES!
THE FOLLOWING EXPLANATION AND TRANSLATION IS FROM #"DVADASA STOTRAM (TWELVE HYMNS) OF SRI MADHVACHARYA" BY KOWLAGI SESHACHAR#:

"As regards the relative position of this Canto in the Dvadasastotra there seems to be some difference of opinion. The late C. M. Padmanabhacharya in his edition of the Dvadasastotra records that this Canto appears as the 12th Canto in the manuscript written by H. H. Hrishikeshatirtha, one of the direct disciples of Sri Madhva and the first pontiff of the Palimar Matha, Udupi. 

But the extant editions of the Dvadasastotra including

Happy New Year!

Happy New 2018 Year to all the Vaishnavas (and Shaktas, of course, because Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya is Shree MahaLakshmi-Sampradaya, that is Shakta-Sampradaya first of all!). 

I wish all the best and "joy everywhere" to all the prapannas from Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya in the forthcoming year!
As Shreemati Andal-Devi says in "Tiruppavai", 30: "The Grace of The Mighty Four-Armed Precious Lord of Lotus Eyes and Auspiciuos Face and joy everywhere!".
