ஸ்ரீ ரங்க கடியம்-Sri Ranga Kadiyam

ஸ்ரீ ரங்க கடியம் 

This is Sanskrit composition by Sri Ramanuja.It is pure expression of Bakthi and detailed expression of God Ranganatha, as repository of guna, that he calls kalyana guna  meaning “virtuous”
First he describes Ranganatha as gnyan(true and perfect knowledge),
Bhala or power, in this case the ability to support Universe,
Aishwarya (incomparable wealth and rulership of the universe),
Shakthi(power to act without extraneous help)
agni (unmatched radiance),
souseelya (purest character)
Vaatsalya(pure unmitigated love),
maardavaa(affectionate tenderness towards devotees)

souhardha(thinking of good only)
madhurya(sweet even to enemies)
Gambeerya (majesty and  nobility)
Audherya(giving out liberally)
chathurya (intelligence, ability to change even enemies into friends)
sthairya (determined to stay on chosen course)
Dhairya(undaunted to bring succor to the Bhaktas,
Sowrya(ability to fight alone)
Parakrama (winning the battle effortlessly,
Sathya karma(having Thy will ever fulfilled)
sathya sankalpa(having Thy deeds fully executed)
Kritithuvam(carrying out duties of God)
kruthangnathai(remembering  with gratitude even a little worship offered to Him),
and repository and ocean of all such innumerable virtues;He is Parabrahman and Purushothaman(foremost of men)

Next he explains how is trapped in samsara and bound by his Karma into doing actions  that result in sins. Neither gnan yoga, the yoga of knowledge nor Karma yoga,the part of virtuous deeds as described in Baghavat Gita help him get Moksha.
Finally he asks that unworthy as he is in so many ways, he be granted the grace of Ranganatha
