Sripad Ramanujacarya Maharaja (1017-1137 AD)

Statue of one of the most influential philosophers of India, Sripad Ramanujacarya Maharaja (1017-1137 AD)
in a corner of the entrance building of the Vishnu-Chenrezig temple.

After a long pilgrimage through India, Sri Ramanuja founded centres to spread devotion to Vishnu and Lakshmi. He provided an intellectual basis for the practice of bhakti (devotion) in major commentaries on the Vedas, the Brahma-sutras, and the Bhagavadgita. He was a major figure in the school of Visistadvaita, which emphasized the need for the soul to be united with a personal god.
