The Thiru Avathara Uthsavam of the Greatest Acharyar ~ Nammiramanusar – is now on and today is day 3. ‘Yathi Rajar’ ~ the king among yathis [hermits and sages], travelled all the way by foot to far-flung places making the Srivaishnavatie tradition flourish in all his path. The more one thinks and reads of him, more one is over-awed by his great qualities and knowledge.
Gadyatrayam, ‘the three prose pieces’ of Swami Bhagavad Ramanuja emphasises bakthi and saranagati as the surest means to attain salvation. He easily achieved the arduous task of refuting the mayavadins who denied all attributes to the Supreme and establish Sriman Narayana with the most adorable form, name, auspicious qualities, aisvarya and more. Sri Vaikunda gadyam believed to have been composed by him, when he was in Melkote, reveals his yearning to reach the Lord and serve Him.
