comment Solution or Reference Request for a Closed Form of the Sum
Do not expect any simple expression for the Legendre function. It is a complicated function in the sense that we cannot answer (even approximately) simple questions like: for a given $q$, how small is the smallest $a\geq 1$ with $\left(\frac{a}{q}\right)=-1$ (cf. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…). We like quadratic reciprocity (among other things) because it allows us to calculate the Legendre symbol in polynomial time.

comment Holomorphic Hoffstein-Lockhart
@RicardoMenares: Small correction to my previous comment. The factor is not exponentially decaying but exponentially increasing in the Maass case.

comment Holomorphic Hoffstein-Lockhart
@RicardoMenares: Note also that in the Maass case, we have the same volume factor, and also a factor that decays exponentially in the spectral parameter and takes the role of the factors depending on $k$ above (Hoffstein-Lockhart build this factor into their Whittaker function, see their (0.1) and the display below it). So the Maass case is not that much different from the holomorphic case.

comment Holomorphic Hoffstein-Lockhart
@RicardoMenares: Indeed, I forgot about the volume factor. I fixed my last 3 displays accordingly. Thanks!
