Selected Readings of Sri Ramanuja: Sri Ramanujacharya is one of the three great acharyas whose Sahasramanotsava was celebrated recently with pomp and gaity. His contribution to the upliftment of poor and down trodden is noteworty. In his life time of 120 years he wrote many works to instill devotion in the minds of the masses by highlighting the concept of Saranagati or Prapatti. (Self surrender to God). Both oriental and occidental scholars like Swami Vivekananda, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan on the one hand, Goethe, Ninian Smart etc. on the other hand have paid glowing tributes to Ramanuja. Ramanuja's service motive, his love and affection for the poor and uneducated masses are relevant for all times. The present work in 25 chapters highlights the contribution of Vishishtadvaitha system of Philosophy to Indian tradition and this is discussed under three heads like Precursors of Ramanuja, Ramanuja and successors of Ramanuja. The last chapter of the work highlights the relevance of Ramanuja to 21st century and in toto the book presents a synoptic view of the contribution of Ramanuja to the Indian thought.
