Stotra Ratnam is a hymnal composition of Svami Alavandar. It is a book of praises on the Lord – Narayana, the Supreme Brahman, in the school of the author. The traditional accounts consider the work to be an exposition of the core tenets of the Divya Prabandham of Azhvars, regarded as Dramidopanishad in Srivaishnava tradition.
At the outset, the author praises his spiritual master Svami Nathamuni in three hymns. Svami Nathamuni is identified as the eternal refuge both in this world and the next. The succeeding hymn praises Sage Parasara Muni, who is the author of the Vishnu Purana, for his contribution to the understanding of metaphysical realities. Svami Nammazhvar is praised next, and identified as the foremost master of his tradition. In Srivaishnava tradition, Svami Nathamuni and Svami Nammazhvar occupy positions before Svami Alavandar on the lineage of preceptors.
