Sri Ramanuja In Karnataka

B.R. Gopal (Author)
Synopsis Sri Ramanuja in Karnataka reviews the life the career of Sri Ramanuja, specially with reference to Karnataka based on traditional accounts. Such traditional accounts are not entirely borne out by contemporary evidences in the form of inscriptions. But corroboration can be found of several events of the life of that great acharya. The present work deals with Sri Ramanuj’s contacts with Karnataka as revealed from inscriptions. The book is divided into three parts, introduction, texts of inscriptions. The book is divided into three parts, introduction, texts of inscriptions with short notes there upon, and translations of these inscriptions. Relevant texts of inscriptions from Melukote, Tonnur as also Saligrama which had received great prominence and were important centers of activities of Sri Ramanuja have been given. The author has made several visits to melukote, I onnur and Saligrama besides other places to check the texts of inscriptions and study the monuments there. Reading of texts of inscriptions as published in the revised volume of Epigraphia Carnatica were checked in Situ wherever possible. Besides the texts, the author has given summaries of the inscriptions both in Kannada and in English. Summaries in Kannada were found necessary since it was felt that texts of many inscriptions are not easily understood in the present day. The summaries in English add some more details. This is why the third part is provided with complete translations in English of all the inscriptions included in the present work.
