रामानुजाचार्य विशिष्टाद्वैत वेदान्त के प्रवर्तक थे। वह ऐसे वैष्णव सन्त थे जिनका भक्ति परम्परा पर बहुत गहरा प्रभाव रहा।

वैष्णव आचार्यों में प्रमुख रामानुजाचार्य की शिष्य परम्परा में ही रामानन्द हुए जिनके शिष्य कबीर और सूरदास थे। रामानुज ने वेदान्त दर्शन पर आधारित अपना नया दर्शन विशिष्ट अद्वैत वेदान्त लिखा था।

रामानुजाचार्य ने वेदान्त के अलावा सातवीं-दसवीं शताब्दी के रहस्यवादी एवं भक्तिमार्गी आलवार सन्तों के भक्ति-दर्शन तथा दक्षिण के पंचरात्र परम्परा को अपने विचारों का आधार बनाया।

Sriranga Gadyam is a Sanskrit prayer written by the Srivaishnavism philosopher Swami Ramanuja towards the end of the 11th century. It is one of the first bhakti prayers in this school of thought and is the basis for many prayers, like Raghuveera gadyam of this style. It is recited in the 108 divya desam temples including Srirangam.

“May I be accepted in the eternal and devoted service of that faultless One, who is complete in all respects — that Lord who holds sway over the nature, existence and activity of the three gradations of the conscious (cetana) and the non-conscious (acetana), Who is untouched by the five types of miseries and pious and sinful karmic reactions: Who is an ocean of sublime, unlimited auspicious qualities: who is the Supreme Brahman and Supreme Person; who reclines on the serpent bed in Sri Rangam; my Master who is complete. I, who have clearly understood myself to be eternally subject to Your command; I who have tasted the sweetness of always engaging in Your service; I, who realizes that You are the subject of all my knowledge and devotion; I, who have experienced You constantly without interruption; eager and anxious to be of immense and commendable service at all times and under all circumstances to You; with this eagerness generated by the pleasure of my experience of Yourself, let me, the very personification of desire be of service, be accepted eternally for such service.

I, whose essential nature is built to be ever commanded by Him, understanding this nature and ever thinking of it, meditating always on His great Lordship and all his auspicious qualities, with a devotion which is a means to the service in the form of an intense desire to be of service in all forms under all conditions, possessed of ripe knowledge which would lead to devoted service, engaged in action in the form of service to Him, lacking as I am in personal qualities like virtue (sattva) and firm faith, possessed as I am of qualities and conduct directly opposite to that enumerated and hence steeped in an ageless ocean of sin incapable of being crosses, with naturally endowed knowledge and lustre covered by inevitable association with prakriti which by nature is susceptible to continuous change and is a mixture of the threefold qualities (satva, rajas & tamas), the inevitable association being ordinarily inseparable like oil in the gingelly seed and fire in firewood; bound inextricably by the rope or karma in the form of virtue and sin collected over ages out of ignorance; I who cannot find the means of overcoming this bond to samsAra however long I may try; I take refuge in your lotus feet as the only means of emancipation O, Narayana! ever associated with Sri! The refuge of all created beings! I seek your protection.

Though I am in this state, full of various defects, I beg of the Lord my acceptance in eternal service to him in the firm faith that the all merciful Lord, heeding to my earnest request, will grant me the favor of steadfastness in everlasting service to Him urged by devotion resulting from the experience of the Lord.

My Lord! you should be pleased, out of Your unbounded mercy, to grant the service to You resulting from the joy of experiencing you. Apart from begging you, I do not know of any other means.

O lotus eyed one! I should be eager to render all forms of service under all conditions. You should grant me this state of mind.

Even if I do not have the wish sincerely for the knowledge or that I am not fit for your grace to reach the goal, Please make the words I gave expression to as an excuse to fill in the defeciencies and render me fit.

Oh! Limitless ocean of mercy!! One who does not think of the differences when his subjects are in distress, You who destroys the distress of those who seek You! Great ocean of love to His devotees, You who know the truth about all Your creations at all times! You with wishes always fulfilled ! You who can do all that You desire! Friend in my distress! You who grieves at the pains of all men, May You ever be associated with Sri! Greatest of personalities! Lord of Sri Rangam! My Lord! I prostrate before you.
