Sri Velukkudi Krishnan swamy says “Bhakti, the refined form of Gnana, is the medicine for the ignorant and elixir for the realised atman in samsara” this guidance from Ramanujar helps dispel the ill effects of Kaliyuga, making him relevant even after 1000 years and remain relevant forever. Swamy Ramanujar seamlessly integrated sanmskruta Vedanta and Azhwars’ Tamil Divyaprabandham which became the most effective teachings for Kaliyuga and made him the most relevant Acharya. Swamy Ramanujar lifted the apparent veil of constraints and brought to light the true message of Vedanta – Equanimity. He further practised it through his life making him very relevant to this modern world”.
