This great prayer by Srimad Vedanta Desika extols Garuda, one of the foremost devotees of Lord Vishnu , who also is his steed. This poem is written in the Dandaka meter  . I keep in my,mind always and dedicate myself, Sri Venkata natha, who is the lion among poets And who is a great teacher of philosophy. Salutations to the Lord of Serpents, Who resides in control of Vaikunta, Who like the mandara mountain, Churned the ocean of Vedas , And has the nectar of it on his legs. The God Garuda who uses the Vedas as his nest as well as the seat, who leaves Vaikunta and accompanies his Lord Narayana, who rides on his shoulders in his endeavors to kill and destroy the enemies of his devotees, who on his return is deeply hugged by his wives Rudrai and Sukeerthi, who miss his absence, which makes his hairs stand erect like thorns and hurts the conquered serpents that he uses as his ornaments, which makes the two tounged serpents overcome with fear and make them open their hoods, leading the gems in their hoods to emit strong red light Which in turn gives out an appearance of showing of camphor light. Victory to Garuda with very pretty wings, who uses huge serpents as his food, who stole the nectar from the devas, which made the king of devas angry with Garuda and made Indra throw his Vajrayudha on him, which in turn caused many wounds on his body, which healed wounds today shine like his ornaments, Who shines in the waving flag of Lord Vishnu during his war leading to the extermination of the Rakshasas and his being recognized as the soul of the war, Who is the personification of truth and assumed the form of five winds Prana, upana, Samana, udana and Vyana.

Swami composed the Hayagreeva Stotram and incorporated the Mantra of Sri Hayagreevan in this stotram. The archa murthy of the Yogaasika Hayagreeva presented by Garuda Bhagavaan can be seen even today, next to the Vigraha of Swami Desikan sculpted by his own hands, when he was challenged by a sculptor, who wanted to defeat Swami in a vigraha nirmAnam contest.
The snake charmer lost thus his snakes and his livelihood. He fell at the feet of Swami and asked for forgiveness.
