Author Name: Gopāl Śrinivāsan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Religion & Spirituality | Other Details

An Ode to Śrī Rāmānuja - YATIRᾹJA SAPTATIḤ is a word to word translation of 74 verses in Sanskrit composed by Swāmi Vedānta Deśika (1268 CE-1369 CE), a well-known Śrī Vaiṣnavite Ācārya, in praise of Śrī Rāmānuja, the founder of the philosophy of Viṣiśṭādvaita.
Referred to as a saint of the heart by Swāmi Vivekānanda, Śrī Rāmānuja’s philosophy is woven around a personal God with all auspicious qualities and attributes. Śrī Rāmānuja composed a total of 9 works in Sanskrit, his ‘magnum opus’ being the interpretation of Sage Vyāsa’s Brahma Sūtra. Swāmi Deśika was a polyglot and an author of 166 granthas in Sanskrit, Prākrit and Maṇipravāla. He established the doctrine of Prapatti (self-surrender) as the guaranteed route to Mōkṣa (liberation).
