Universe as One Family.  For example, in every temple, people
       from all walks of life come together for a common societal cause,
       worship and to celebrate festivals.  Arts, culture and economic
       activity is encouraged through temple procedures, benefitting all
       sections of society.  Ramanuja brought people together based
       on their commonality and united them with a common purpose,
       encouraging everyone to contribute according to their own skills
       and desire.

       Ramanujacharya is that gigantic reservoir from which all present-
       day schools of thought that advocate Equality have flowed out as
       creeks, rivulets and tributaries. His activities are not just stories
       heard at home, they are documented, historical facts.
