Tirupati: Bhagavat Ramanuja is not only a most important exponent of Vaishnavism but also a great social informer who strived for expanding the contours of Bhakti and spirituality to reach common man and neglected sections, said TTD Executive Officer Dr D Sambasiva Rao.
Taking part as the chief guest in the inaugural session of the three-day national seminar on "The Philosophy of Bhagavad Ramanuja" convened by SV Vedic varsity in Tirupati on Sunday, in his address he said the advent of a scintillating era in the world of philosophy and spirituality originated with Ramanujacharya, 1000 years back. "His vibrant philosophy raised the curtain for ushering an era of social, as well as, philosophic revolution. Bhagavad Ramanuja was instrumental for the revival, growth, amplification and vivification of “Visishtadwaitha school of thought”, he observed.
