Group Description

The International Ramanuja Society is a non-profit, volunteer supported organization dedicated to fostering and promoting the philosophical and humanitarian ideals of Sri Ramanuja, the renowned 11th century scholar and theologian of South India. This list supports the Society by exchanging information on the vast body of literature and philosophical tenets that Ramanuja promoted.

Sri Ramanuja is regarded to be the foremost among a disciplic succession of Acharyas (Spiritual Teachers) of the SriVaishnava religious tradition, a monotheistic path that centers on the adoration of God through faith, surrender, and service to humanity. Sri Ramanuja's monumental contributions towards uplifting and validating the faith has made the tradition itself come to be known as Sri Ramanuja Darshanam, Sri Ramanuja's Vision. Indeed, many followers of the path regard faith in Sri Ramanuja, his remarkable life, and his paradigmatic works to be in and of themselves a means to realizing God.

In addition to being a profound religious leader and thinker, Sri Ramanuja was renowned for his magnanimous demeanor and egalitarian outlook. His emphasis on a synthesis of scholarly understanding and simple, heartfelt devotionalism allowed the message of the SriVaishnava path to be shared with all people, irrespective of race, caste, creed or gender. It is this very spirit of all-inclusiveness that serves as the driving force and central focal point for the International Ramanuja Society.

The Society's ongoing projects are intended to create an educational and humanitarian environment for understanding and participating in the vast religious traditions and profound philosophical ideals of Sri Ramanuja's Vision. The Society's goals are to share Sri Ramanuja's devotional ideals with a broad range of interested individuals, from devout practitioners, to newcomers to the tradition, even to those who are seeking to deepen their appreciation of their own faith in light of Sri Ramanuja's teachings
