Varadaraja Stotram from Narada Purana
(Here is a prayer addressed to Varadaraja of Kannchi puram temple taken from Narada Purana . This great prayer is addressed to the Lord presiding in temple at Thiru vehaa, which is near Kanchi puram. This lord is also called Yathokthakari(He who obeys what is told to him).There is an interesting story about this.
Once Lord Brahma wanted to perform Aswamedha (horse sacrifice) Yagna in the hill near Kanchi called Hastha Giri. Since his consort Saraswathi did not want him to do it, he took help from others. So the enraged goddess came as river Veghavathi(fast moving river) and wanted to destroy the Yaga. But lord Vishnu had decided to help Lord Brahma to do this sacrifice and so he assumed the form of a dam across Vegahvathi and stopped the waters. Vegha Sethu is that dam. This prayer is addressed to Lord in the form of this dam.
He is called Yathokthakari because once when one of his great devotees wanted him , he relocated from Kanchipuram to Thiru Veha, with his folded bed(Adhi Sesha ) .The Sanskrit text of this prayer is given in
