Swami Mudaliandan Thanian (by Kandadai Andan):

paduke yati-rajasya kathayanthi yadakhyaya |
tasya daasarathe:paadav Sirasa dharayaam yaham ||


Meaning: Yathiraja paduka (Ramanuja's lotus feet) is what he is known as. Hence we pay our respect to Daasarathi's lotus feet (Mudaliandan).

Thiru Natchathira Thanian:

mesha Punarvasudhinae daasarathi hamsa sambhavam |
yatheendra paadhukaapikyam vandhe daasarathim gurum ||


Meaning: Chithirai Month (mesha month), day of Punarpoosam with Lord Rama's amsam also known as yathiraja paduka is our guru Daasarathi (Mudaliandan)

It is interesting to note Daasarathi (Mudaliandan) முதலியாண்டான் is considered as being an Avathara of the Lord himself. It seems that Lord Rama was so pleased with Adiseshan's service to Him as Lakshmana that He wanted to serve him in future Avatharas. As a result, He bestowed the Avathara of Balarama to Adiseshan and himself as Sri Krishna and himself as Sri Krishna. Adiseshan incarnation as Swami Ramanuja, lord became his Daasan, Daasarathi.
