Yatipati (यतिपति) refers to the “Lord of the Ascetics”, according to the Vedānta Deśika’s Yatirājasaptati.—The poem’s first ten verses create the context for the exaltation of Rāmānuja. This context is the lineage of teachers (guruparaṃparā) who preceded him. [...] In verse 11 Rāmānuja is addressed, for the first time, with the phrase “Lord of the Ascetics” (yatipatipatiṃ yatīnām).
