Vairagyapancakam – meaning with emphasis on Sanskrit

A sketch of Swami Desika by adiyen with a white board marker pen!

Sri Vairagyapancakam, a stuti of 6 verses, is a composition of Swami Nigamantha Mahadesika. Swami declares in this verse that his only wealth is Lord Varadaraja of Kanchi, acquired by Pitamaha (grandfather or Lord Brahma) and that neither he nor his father have accumulated any material wealth. The stuti seems to be a retort to an invitation to Swami, who was living a life of renunciation  by choice, by one of his childhood friends to decorate the court of a famous King and be happy materialistically instead.
