Shree JnanaLakshmi...


"Vedanta Desika strictly follows Ramanuja. He never tolerates the slightest difference between his conclusions and the writings of Ramanuja. 

Even where there are certain apparent contradictions, they are solved in a very significant manner. In addition to this, he also contributes his own conclusions which are based upon scriptures, writings of great Acharyas, logic and experience. 

Thus buddhi has received a very handsome treatment at the hands of Vedanta Desika. 

He compares buddhi to Goddess Lakshmi. This JnanaLakshmi is being served by the ShriSuktis (auspicious statements) of Ramanuja and bestows the desired objects to devotees. 

She has climbed the peak of Vedanta mountain and there She is enjoying the unbounded bliss ensued by the company of the Lord Damodara. 

Shree JnanaLakshmi, Who is Bhakti-Svarupini and NityAnanda-Svarupini, come to our heart to lead us towards Vasudeva".

Krishna within you, arrogance, asuras, tamasika Puranas and "to all except those of an asuric nature"...

Translation: "You are greater than the greatest. This is known to all, except those of a demoniac nature by 1) Your benevolent disposition, 2) by the loveliness of Your Form, 3) by Your divine deeds, 4) by Your exalted Sattva nature, 5) by the accounts in the scriptures which are authoritative because they are Sattva in tenor and 6) by the precepts of the famous knowers of the Supreme Truth".

"SRI KRISHNA KARNAMRITA OF LILASUKA" [English translation] #by M. K. Acharya# ~1948~

DOWNLOAD (Sanskrit-English)

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: Nice 1948 edition, speedread in 1 hour for me. 

I don't remember to which Vaishnava-Sampadaya Bilvamangala Thakur  (Lilasuka) belonged, but judging from some Verses of "Shree Krishna-Karnamrita" he was a Shri-Vidya (Lalita TripuraSundari upasaka). 

He mentions Panchakshari-Shiva Mantra often (for example, Verse 2.24):

Not only this - the following Verse is very exemplary and sounds like pure Shri-Vidya (by the way if you read just English variant, you don't notice Lalita Names, the reason I noticed is that I belong to Shri-Vidya and my eyes see Sanskrit Names of Goddess - especially with "ल - LA" - Lakshmi, Lalita -  even if I speedread):

Wikipedia also says about Gopala-Sundari-Vidya - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Krishna_Karnamrutam

No wonder about this as many Shree Vidya-upasakas are often initiated in various Gopala-Vidyas (Krishna-Vidyas) because Krishna (Gopala) is more famous among Shakta-Tantriks than among Vaishnava-Tantriks (see Gopala-Khanda of "Shree Sharada-Tilaka-Tantram", for example).
