Start Over
Dhaati Panchakam was rendered by Swami Mudaliandan at thondanur when Swami Ramanuja takes his adisesha form with 1000 hoods and won over 12,000 Jainists to prove that Vishistadvaitam is true and Sriman Narayana is the Supreme God (Paramatma), Chit (Living things) & Achit (Non Living Things) exists.

Dhaati Panchakam Thanian

Meaning
: At Baktha nagar (Thondanur), who had rendered Dhaati Panchakam sloka was none other than Ramanuja's close disciple, Sri Daasarathi (Mudaliandan).

Dhaati Panchakam speaks of the victory of Ramanuja over other philosophies - both those that accept Vedas and those that don't - and his establishing the Visishtadvaita philosohpy that was built by Azhwars and Purvacharyas. As the name shows it is made of five shlokas. The word dhATI means "attacking" - as this work shows the attack that Ramanuja carried over the other philosophies that were widespread at that time, it is an appropriate name for it.
