Jaya Jaya Sri Sudarsana
We all know svAmi vEdAnta dEsikan composed srI sudarsanAstakam to relieve the sufferings from a dreadful disease which pervaded in thiruputkuzhi.

The 3 Phrases
In Tamil, we commonly say these three phrases -
oru peNNin kashtam innoru peNNukku thAn theriyum (ஒரு பெண்ணின் கஷ்டம் இன்னொரு பெண்ணுக்கு தான் தெரியும்)
pombaLa vishayam (பொம்பள விஷயம்)
peNN pAvam pollAthu (பெண் பாவம் பொல்லாது)
srI rAmajayam and srI krishNArpaNam
It is customary in our sampradAyam to say at the begining "srI rAmajayam". While there are numerous avathArams, this phrase doesn't get commonly associated with other avathArams, ie. we don't say srI nrisimhAjayam or srI krishnajayam.
So why is this unique for the rAmAvathAram?
