Srivacanabhusanam, the magnumopus with its authentic commentary exhaustively elucidates the intrinsic meanings and teachings of the three Rahasya Mantras of Tirumantra, Dvaya Mantra and Caramasloka. The book explicitly condenses the metaphysical and theological doctrines of the Alvars; dileactcal views of vedantic order; devotional attitudes of Itihasa-Puranas; and the socio-cultural and linguistic texture of indiginous literature of the Tamil Country. This polemic work factually elaborate the following religious themes with panoramic outlook: 1. Theo-philosophy behind Goddess Sri Laxmi and her intermediate status between the lord and devotee as purusakara; and the countless asthetic qualities of the lord Sriman Narayana as the means as well as the end in itself for the mukto, the liberation. 2. Prapatti, the complete surrender to the Lord for his redemptive grace, where it never consideres the limitation like time and place, cerimonial procedure, eligibility but with the object only, i.e., to whome one has to perform it to fulfill his cherished desire; and the necessary qualifications to follow the destined means. 3. Routines of the Parapanna and the necessities to perform the Kainkarya 'Service' to the Lord. 4. Charactewrstics features and the pleasing conduct between the good teacher and that of the good disiple; the the subject matters; alongwith the ways to be taught by the former by the latter. Innate nature of the Lord's nirhetukakarpa, 'causless grace' within which He without any ristrictions and explanations helps his devotees for their final emancipation. 6. Need of acaryabhimana as the simplest means to attain paramapada, the abode of the Lord.
