She taught good manners to her son Ramanuja and invoked the “VISHNU BHAKTI SPIRIT” to her son at his younger age itself. She used to treat everyone as alike similar to her divine son Sri Ramanuja, and got great bhakti on Lord Vishnu, and used to observe fasting during Ekadasi days. After living a holistic life for many years, she has attained the Lotus feet of Lord Vishnu.
Let us worship the divine mother and be blessed.
