RAMANUJA

SANKARA, Ramanuja and Madhava are the three chief Acharyas or religious teacher of India.

Ramanuja taught us that God Vishnu is Supreme and we are all his devotees.

Ramanuja lived three hundred years afterSankara, i.e., about 900 years ago.

He was born at Sri Perumbadur in Tamil Nadu to a man called Kesava Bhattar. Alavandar, a religious teacher of srirangam, was his maternal great-grandfather.

The boy was originally named Lakshmana. The name mans the same as Ramanuja, which in its turn means the younger brother of Rama.

Ramanuja lost his father in his young age. When the earlier part of his education was over, he was sent along with his cousin Govinda Bhattar to kanchi to study Vedanta under a teacher by name Yadavaprakasa.
