Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

FAQ's on Azhwars and Acharyas.

70) What is the importance of Guru or Acharya in our system of philosophy?

To understand the proper meaning of Sastras is very difficult. We have to properly interpret some of the texts, which seem to be conflicting with each other. There are also inner meanings and secret meanings of the various mantras and slokas.

So, all these things can be properly understood, only by learning under a Guru or Acharya. So, the Acharya is most important, for properly understanding our religion and philosophy.

71) What is the Chronology of our Sampradaya (Guru parampara). Who is our first Guru?

Lord Narayana is our first Guru. He taught Vedas to Brahma and Brahma in turn taught the Vedas to others. Hence at the head of our line of Gurus is Lord Narayan.

72) Who comes next?

Next in the line of Gurus is naturally our Goddess Mahalakshmi and then comes Vishvaksena or Senai Mudaliyar. This is aterm of respect , traditionally used for denoting Vishwaksena).

Vishwaksena taught Nammalwar or Satakopa the philosophy of Vishistadvaitam.

73) Who comes next after Vishvaksena?

Nammalwar or Satakopa comes next.

74) How man the Alwars are there?

There are ten Alwars. Some people include Andal and Madhurakavi and say there are twelve Alwars.

75) Why were they called Alwars?

‘Alwar’ in Tamil means ‘one who is immersed’. Since these saints were always immersed in the Lord and His qualities, they were called Alwars.
