Sri Parasara Bhattar

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

Sri Parasara Bhattar was the son of Koorathazhvar and the chief priest of the Sri Rangam temple. He was forced to leave the city of Srirangam when he angred the Chola king. After receiving the edict but before leaving, he composed the Sri Ranganatha Stotram. After leaving Sri Rangam, he settled in Thirukkhoshtiyur. The great love he had for Sri Ranganatha and the anguish he felt when he was forced to leave is evident in the stotra.
