Lakṣmaṇadeśika (लक्ष्मणदेशिक) (or Lakṣmaṇadeśikendra, Lakṣmaṇācārya), author of the Śāradātilaka-tantra, is the son of Śrīkṛṣṇa and great-grandson of Mahābala according to the 11th-century Śaradātilaka verse 25.86-87.—“(86) Of that lord, who possessed an Ācārya’s wealth of knowledge, Lakṣmaṇadeśikendra [was] the son, who obtained great fame in all [branches of] knowledge (vidyā) and all [performing] arts (kalā). (87) This wise man here composed the Tantra named the illustrious “forehead mark of Śāradā” (Śāradātilaka), taking the complete essence from all the Āgamas [and making the number of] chapters [the same as] the number of constituents (tattva) [i.e. twenty-five], with the object of long giving joy to learned [people]”.
