DOWNLOAD (Sanskrit-English):

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: Good philological research dedicated to "Shishupala-Vadha" by Magha Mahakavi - a poem extolling Bhagavan Shree Krishna as the destroyer of Shishupala. 

The book has a detailed analysis of all Rasas, don't miss if you are fond of Bhakti, Rasas explanations and etc. 

Chapter called "The fragrance of the fine statements" (page 103) is very interesting: it contains short maxims by Magha Mahakavi, for example:

2.65. सर्वः स्वार्थं समीहते sarvaH svArthaM samIhate - everyone is too egoistic and thinks about his benefit only

16.26. अनुहुंकुरुते घनध्वनिं न हि गोमायुरुताने केसरीanuhuMkurute ghanadhvaniM na hi gomAyurutAne kesarI - A lion roars against the thundering sounds of clouds but not against the yelpings of the jackals.

P.S. Speedread in 20 minutes for me and only 3 links to download, as the researches of this kind are not crucial for my E-Library (my blog focuses mainly on Shree RamanujAcharya and Shree MadhvAcharya Sampradayas Granthas). 
Nevertheless the research is definitely worth of reading in case you want to be more literate in Bhakti, poetic Sanskrit and Rasas!

The dirtier is jiva: Vatsalya, "cow-to-dirty-calf-attitude" and Doshabhogyatva of Bhagavan Shree Narayana...

As I noticed in my annotation M. Narasimhachary in his research #"SRI VEDANTA DESIKA"# not only summarizes Tenkalai/Vadakalai Siddhantas, but also makes attempts to reconcile them. 

The following excerpt reconciles 2 opinions regarding "Doshabhogyatva" of Bhagavan Shree Narayana. 

"Doshabhogyatva" = "enjoying sins of prapanna by Bhagavan Shree Narayana due to the sins being an incentive for help and forgiveness from the side of Bhagavan Shree Narayana". [in Sanskrit "dosha = defect" and "bhogya = something to be enjoyed"]

According to Doshabhogyatva-Siddhanta Bhagavan Shree Narayana is akin to a cow who licks all the dirt off her child-calf instead of punishing her disobedient and silly offspring!

For this reasong Doshabhogyatva is closely connected with Vatsalya-Bhava of Bhagavan Shree Narayana!

"Doshabhogyatva" is the crucial part of Tenkalai Siddhanta (Shree Pillai LokAcharya, the Southern Branch of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya). 

If you are interested in Tenkalai (Shree Pillai LokAcharya) opinion regarding "Doshabhogyatva" please refer to #"Shree Vachana-Bhushanam"# not to separate Shlokas dedicated to "Doshabhogyatva", but to overall complex logical chains which Shree Pillai LokAcharya constructs. 

If you study just separate Shlokas out of "Shree Vachana-Bhushanam" entire context and its integral unity, you are at risk of conceiving the Doshabhogyatva-idea in a wrong way!

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: One of the best Granthas dedicated to OM VishnuPad Vedanta Desika MahAcharya (Vadakalai, The Northern Branch of Shree Ramanuja-Sampradaya)! 

This research also includes comparisons of Tenkalai/Vadakalai as well as the attempts to reconcile both Siddhantas. 

I have read this Grantha while walking in the white snowy park under sunny Moscow frosts! Beautiful!
