Worship you own, respect all – needs to be the intrinsic part of one’s life for a peaceful world. Bringing forth Sri Ramanuja’s doctrine of selfless service to the universal attention and propagating his ideals for the betterment of the society is a divine call of the conscience with the blessings of my GURU. His steadfast principles captivated me to envisage this mission to be accomplished for his 1000th birth anniversary in 2017, realizing it for a divine person who played a monumental role in diminishing disparities among humans.
“Then came the brilliant Ramanuja. Ramanuja’s heart was greater. He felt for the downtrodden, he sympathised with them. He took up the ceremonies, the accretions that had gathered, made them pure so far as they could be, and instituted new ceremonies, new methods of worship, for the people who absolutely required them. At the same time he opened the door to the highest; spiritual worship from the Brahmin to the Pariah. That was Ramanuja’s work. That work rolled on, invaded the North, was taken up by some great leaders there. You may mark one characteristic since the time of Ramanuja — the opening of the door of spirituality to everyone.”
