Description

About the Book:

Sri Ramanuja's commentary on the Bhagavad Gita is not so widely known as that of Sri Sankara. It may be due to the fact that Sri Ramanuja came about three centuries after Sri Sankara. To have a comparatively full knowledge of Vedanta, a study of Sri Ramanuja's commentary on the Bhagavad Gita also is essential.

In Ramanuja's interpretation of Vedanta, devotion to presonal God and His grace are stressed as the exclusive means for release from Samsara or the Cycle of births and deaths. It is for the benefit of such devotees that we have been induced to bring out this publication.

Preface

Sri Ramanuja is one of the noted commentators on the Vedanta Sutras of Badarayana, and the Bhagavad Gita. This has brought him recognition as one of the greatest exponents of Vedanta from the Vaisnava point of view. He has not, however, written any commentary on the Upanisads unlike Sri Sankara and unlike several other exponents of Vaisnavism. The explanation given for this omission by his followers is that as most of the essential passage of the Upanisads occur in Badarayana's Vedanta Sutras, Sri Ramanuja's commentary known as Sri Bhasya should be considered adequate as a commentary on the Upanisads also.

Born as the son of Kesava Diksita in Sriperembadur, which is not far off from the city of Madras, by the blessings of Parthasarathy in Tiru-alli-keni (meaning Lily-lake, but now known in its anglicized form as Triplicane), he had his education in scriptures first under Yadava-prakasa in Kancheepuram. He, however, differed from Yadava-prakasa – an exponent of the Bheda-bheda ideology which was then considered as Advaita – on account of his inherent tendency of Vaisnava monotheism. After separating from Yadava-prakasa, he look to the service of Varadaraja in the great Visnu temple in Kancheepuram. Afterwards in the great Visnu temple in Kancheepuram. Afterwards he migrated to Srirangam and for the whole of his long life (120 years), he remained as a servant of Ranganatha, except when he went on short periods of propaganda tours to different parts of this country and also to Melkote in present Mysore State because of the persecution of Vaisnavas by a Chola King named Kulothunga. His exile was a blessing in disguise, because Vaisnavism became prevalent in those places which were then dominated by Jainism. All this is a long story which may be out of place in a preface or a Publisher's Note. Interested readers can find all details from our publications 'Life of Ramanuja' by Swami Ramakrsnananda and in our book Bhakti Schools of Vedanta.'

The translation of Sri Ramanuja Gita Bhasya has been done by Swami Adidevananda. He was a distinguished member of the Ramakrsna Order of Sannyasins. He, however, retained his inherent Sri Vaisnava heritage. This is not at all incompatible with the traditions given as a legacy by Sri Ramakrsna and Swami Vivekananda.

Swami Adidevananda has to is credit several other Sri Vaisnava texts, like Stotraratna and Yatindra-Mata-Deepika.

His present translation of the Gita Bhasya is of special importance, because it is the only translation with the original Sanskrit text now available for readers interested in the philosophy of Sri Ramanuja. We are only sorry that it is a posthumous publication, because Swami Adidevananda, who was then in charge of Sri Ramakrsna Asrama at Bangalore, passed away in 1983.

This publication is undertaken with considerable financial assistance from Sundaram Charities, headed by Sri T. S. Santhanam, Chairman of the T.V.S., which is one of the most prominent business concerns of Madras. Our grateful thanks are due to him for enabling us to undertake this publication and offer it to the public at a very modest price.
