SUPERB - LACONIC, BUT VERY POWERFUL - SPEECH FROM #"THE PHILOSOPHY OF VISISTADVAITA AS EXPOUNDED BY SRI VEDANTA DESIKA IN THE NYAYA-SIDDHANJANA" BY DR .M.E. RANGACHAR#:
"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".
