The magnificence of Sri Ramanujacharya.
The confidential truth is that in order to quickly bestow auspiciousness upon the living entities of Kali-yuga, in the beginning, the Supreme Lord sent His devotees such as Sathhakopa (Nammalvar), Ramanuja, Vishnusvami, Madhvacarya and Nimbaditya to this world, and desiring to bestow the supreme secret of attaining conjugal love of Godhead, He personally assumed the form of a devotee named Sri Krishna Caitanya and descended with His own Golokadhama in the supreme place of pilgrimage, Gauda-bhumi.

  1. Venkatesh RD says :

    A very nice and succinct description of the life and pastimes of Sri Ramanujacharya by Maharaj. Especially, the mention of the emphasis on Bhāgavata seva and taking shelter of a Maha-Bhagavata as “the only means whereby one can obtain the Supreme Lord” are most significant.

    Also, it would be apt to mention that, in Srivaishnavam, while dāsyam is generally mentioned as the primary relationship of a jīva with the Lord, for Srivaishnavas, this has the connotation of “absolute servitude” which in practice takes shape in any number of different relationships (rasā’s, including Mādhurya, which is known as Nāyikā bhāva in Srivaishnavam and which was experienced by Sri Nammalvar and other Alvars as can be seen in Divya Prabandham) in any number of different bodies simultaneously as needed for the kainkaryam/service. Even a jīva already in Vaikuntha desiring a specific rasā is not out of bounds, since such a desire has not grown of the jīva’s (non-existent) swatantriya (independent will) in Vaikuntha, rather out of paratantriyam (being at the total disposal of Lord).
