Random thoughts on Sri Ramanuja

-NARASIMHAN VARADARAJAN

TO GREATER HEIGHTS!

Tall Ramanuja went up A tall temple wall
To make a loud announcement to all
Who desired To know What he had learned from
The  ‘ Tall man of the town’ (Thirukottiyur).
He told them what he had learnt To their glee;
But that disheartened the guru
Who had shared with Ramanuja
The secret and sacred mantra
Under a cover of promise Not to be told to anybody.


The Himalayan-like tall man of the town
Sent for the tall man Ramanuja
To show his fury and point out the consequences
Of breach of promise  Made to a guru.
The humility in the tall man Ramanuja
Made him , say, Vamana-like in size
Prostrated before the great ‘Himalaya’ in fury.
But the fury broke out And asked the tall man
“What have you done?” And added
“Are you aware of the consequences of breach of promise given to a guru?”.

(Note that this was to a MAN who was going to keep
all the 3 promises given to his manaseeka guru, 

Swami Alavandar, later in life.  
But then no one would know the future in store as of then)

Our tall man said he was aware of
The consequences of condemnation to hell
But had revealed the mantra For public good.
The heat of compassion for others residing in the tall man 

like the heat in the sun
Made the Himalayan like tall man of the town
Melt down.

And the' tall man of the town' saw the tall order compassion and love  

For People in the tall man and
Embraced him to call him Embperumanar
For he possessed the same degree of compassion
As that of the TALLEST MAN on Ubhya Vibhuthi!

And the till ‘then’ taller man also regretted
That he did not have an heart as that of tall man
Who braved to face the consequences for The Cause!
Result?
The out look to way of life itself
Was 'redefined'  to be known as
Embperumanar Darsanam
in stead of  hither to known
Parama Vaideega Darsanam!

What a great decoration for the tall Sri Ramanuja!

Jai Ho Sri Ramanuja!
