Veṅkaṭanātha, or Vedāntadeśika, traditionally dated 1270-1369, is one of the most important representatives of the South Indian school of Rāmānuja. Veṅkaṭanātha systematized the tradition’s teachings and laid down the doctrines that are authoritative for the Vaṭakalai, the tradition’s northern, Sanskrit-oriented sub-sect, thus having a decisive influence on its further development.

This project on Veṅkaṭanātha's theology has begun with the third chapter of the Nyāyasiddhāñjana, which deals with the nature of God and contrasts the relevant teachings to those of opponents belonging to other Vedānta traditions. The analysis of this chapter of the Nyāyasiddhāñjana will be augmented with the corresponding chapters of the Sarvārthasiddhi and the Śatadūṣaṇī, which also include teachings about the Absolute and its nature, as well as with relevant passages from other texts.
