Sri Ramanujacharya’s Leadership, Management and Personality development traits

-Akshayaram Viswanathan



ABSTRACT:


Highlighting my personal learning’s from Acharya Ramanuja Leadership, Mangement and his personality development traits from the examples and life happenings in the life of Acharya Ramanuja which I felt is great and should be followed in our present world.


Acharaya Ramanuja Leadership and Management:


Born in 1017 CE at Sriperumbudur, Acharya Ramanuja legacy is nearing 1000 year mark. It is only possible in our country, Bharat which is the pool of knowledge to the world where we can see every saints works being praised, talked, discussed and practiced even after an one thousand year.


If it is for Acharya Ramanuja religious journey and Religious preaching alone then our ancestors would not have told about him and carried his legacy for the past 1000 years. We have people who don’t believe in god and still spreading Acharya Ramanuja message to the world.. What made this possible?


It is because of the way he lived. When it comes to Leadership and Administration, Acharya Ramanuja greatness can be understood in the small incident. When Acharya was made incharge of the
Thiruvarangam temple, he abolished the habit of entire temple work being carried out by particular caste people. He made all class of people irrespective of their caste, creed involve in the temple work. Acharya also proved that

இதனை இதனால் இவன்முடிக்கும் எனறாய்ந்து
அதனை அவன்கண் விடல்
He not only gave the right people the right job. There are a lot of things to know from this he changed the way people looked at the caste system that time. He proved people that caste is not the thing to be classified based on birth but the thing to be classified based on work we do. He proved that there is no restriction to caste, any one can do anything which he likes or in which he is good at. He was the first man to say it. He not only involved different class of people in temple job but he also gave them houses near the temple so that they would be able to spend their maximum time for the temple.

There is one thing that we should learn from this thing. Yes it is thing that is followed most of the Public Sector Units now but the time in which he did that should be noted by doing so he abolished the system of not allowing particular class of people inside the temple and made temple a common place for all. It takes a great courage to do things like this 1000 years back.


 Acharya Ramanuja Personality development traits:

 There are many things and ways in which Acharya Ramanuja life would be great moulding factor for today generation people. I particularly remember an incident which was published in the book called “Mahan Ramanujar” written by Lakshmi Narashimar in which the author narrates a story of king being very much pleased and happy seeing his one of the worker’s dedication to Acharya Ramanuja. He told him to continue his good to Acharya full time and he still give him full salary. This information reached out to Acharya Ramanuja told the King that the Money without doing work is not good and sent back the salary of his disciple.

Another incident in Acharya life which would be very useful for us is the time in which Acharya spent not reveling his true identity due to the pressure from the king Kirumikondan. He spent more than 20 years living hiding but this is the time in Acharya Ramanuja life where he spent most time in spreading Vaishnavisam. Acharya even made jain King ti know the Imporatnace of Vaishnavisam and the great things it preaches the King then converted to Vaishnavisam.


Acharaya converted his negatives into positives. The hiding time he converted to doing his work bestowed on him. This only comes when we have the immense commitment in the things we do, clarity of mind and great courage in heart. Acharya Ramnuja was seen has the combination of the three.


These qualities being followed by a common individual makes him extraordinary and great leader we living in Bharat have immense example from great people lived in our holy mother land lets follow them all and take our country to “param vai bhavam” state.
