My translations of few stotras of Vaishnavite Literature


My translations of few  stotras of  Vaishnavite  Literature 
By
P.R.Ramachander



Among  my small  contribution of  translation  of religious  literature  to English  , I have also  done simple peripheral translation of the following Vaishnavite literature. These  have been done without any commentary or deeper meanings

Compared to the   huge  mountain like  work done in this regard by  very many great and erudite scholars in the modern times like Dr.Opilappan Koil  Varadachari Sadagopan , in various web sites like sadagopan.org , ahobilam.org, sripedia.org , Sundarsimham.orgwhere deeper scholarly commentary is given to almost all the entire Vaishnavite literature, my contribution is just like  a small  tiny anthill.
