Ramanuja

Ramanuja

( 1017 – 1137 )

Born in South India, Ramanuja was founder of the Vishista-Advaita
(“Qualified Nondualism”) school of Vedanta and leading theologian of the
medieval bhakti (devotion) movement. He championed Vaishnavism (devotion
to Vishnu) and was the chief opponent of Shankara’s philosophy.

Ramanuja taught that the Absolute is not merely impersonal
and unqualified but includes in its being the phenomenal world. He wrote
brilliant commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita, the Brahma-Sutra
and the major Upanishads.
