SRI RAMANUJACHARYA NAMAVALI

INTRODUCTION

Ramanuja (1017 AD–1137 AD) was one of the most important influential spiritual masters of the  Vaishnavism tradition. According to traditional belief, he has been regarded as an AMSA of Lord Adhishesha. He founded the Bhakti movement on Lord Vishnu. He is also known as Sri Ramanujacharya, Udaiyavar, Yatiraja, Bhashyakarar, Godagrajar, Thiruppavai Jeeyar, Emberumanar and Lakshmana Muni.

Ramanuja’s guru was Yadava Prakasa. Ramanuja is the famous chief supporter of Vishishtadvaita. Ramanuja wrote several spiritual texts in Sanskrit, such as Bhasyas on the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita.

According to Sri Ramanuja, devotion to a personal God acts as a means to spiritual liberation.

Ramanuja was born to pious Tamil Iyengar parents in the village of Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu.

Ramanuja was married and then moved to Kanchipuram, studied under Yadava Prakasa. Due to certain disagreement, Ramanuja and Yadava Prakasa were separated, and thereafter Ramanuja continued his studies on his own.

Ramanuja became a priest at the Varadharaja Perumal temple at Kanchipuram, his teaching were based on the principle that moksha can be achieved only with the help of Lord Vishnu. Ramanuja has occupied a highest authority in the Sri Vaishnava tradition.

He is regarded as the single most influential thinker of devotional Hinduism, and his efforts made bhakti as the major force within different traditions of Hinduism. He was also against caste discrimination and treated all castes of people as alike.

Ramanuja reformed the Srirangam Ranganathaswamy temple complex.

In Sriperumbudur, there is a Vishnu temple and is an active Vishishtadvaita school.

Ramanuja stopped the people in doing bad karmas, and invoked them in doing good karmas by uttering the various names of Lord Vishnu. Mainly he wants all of the people to get Liberated (Attaining MOKSHA) by chanting god’s name.
