Ramanuja Sampradaya in Gujarat: A Historical Perspective
Ramanuja Sampradaya in Gujarat: A Historical Perspective
Description
From the Jacket

Vaisnavism acquired a new philosophical base with the concept of Visistadvaita propounded by Ramanuja who lived in South India in the 11th century A.D. This book explains how Ramanuja Sampradaya which is also called Sri Vaisnavism made its way and developed in the state of Gujarat.

The book contains six chapter. The introductory chapter deals, briefly, with the rise and development of Vaisnavism in general and that of Sri Vaisnavism in particular. This is followed by a detailed chapter on the life of Ramanuja and his philosophical tenets. The third chapter which constitutes the essence of the study deals with the induction and spread of Ramanuja Sampradaya in Gujarat. While the Acaryas of the Mutts of Tamil Nadu and individual Preachers from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka were responsible for taking Ramanuja Sampradaya to Gujarat, its spread in the later days was mostly due to the Acaryas of Rajasthan, Mathura and Brindavan. Chapter four is devoted to the temples of this Sampradaya preceded by an introduction to the local Tirthaksetras in Gujarat. This chapter also describes the icons of Visnu along with his Consort found in the temples of this sect. Chapter five presents a brief study of the impact of Ramanuja Sampradaya on the social system in Gujarat. The concluding chapter gives the present status of the Sampradaya in Gujarat. The book contains sixty six illustrations of the various Acaryas, temples and icons of Visnu and his Consort.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
