What is the philosophy of Ramanujacharya?

By Ritesh|Updated : September 2nd, 2022

Ramanujacharya's philosophy indulged the thought of being important in humanity's search for numerous varieties. The phenomenal world is real, providing real knowledge or contrary to the life of the spirit.

  • The main contribution of Ramanujacharya to philosophy was the demand that long thought is required in search of humanity for the highest truths, that the phenomenal world provides real knowledge and is real, and that the necessities of everyday life are not harmful or contrary to human life.
  • Like other followers of the system of Vedanta, Ramanuja recognized that the Vedanta system should be based on three "starting points," namely the Brahma-sutras, Upanishads, and Bhagavad Gita, which was a conversation between Krishna's deity and his friend Arjuna.

  • He did not write any commentary on individual Upanishads. Still, He explained in depth the method of knowing the Upanishads in the first important work, the Vedartha-Samgraha (" Meaning of the Veda Summary").
  • More of this was included in his commentary on Brahma-sutras, Sri-Bhasya, which shows his fully developed views.
  • His commentary on Bhagavad Gita, the Bhagavad Gita-Bhasya, is dated from old age.
  • Although the contribution of Ramanuja to Vedanta thought was significant, his influence on the Hinduism course as a religion was greater.
  • By allowing the devotional worship (bhakti) urges into his doctrine of salvation, the popular religion was aligned with the pursuits of philosophy and provided bhakti with an intellectual basis.

Ramanujacharya's philosophy indulged discursive thought, critical of humanity's search for extreme varieties. He is the opposite of Shankara in emphasis, of whom he was critical and whose scripture interpretation he questioned.
