Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

Role of Sri (Laksmi) - The Mediatrix

In Srivaisnavism theology, the Supreme Person expresses His will to redeem by having a dual Spiritual Form - Narayana and Sri.

Lord Narayana with perfect justice rules the universe but Laksmi (Sri) His eternal consort resides within His heart as the embodiment of Saving Grace. – The Universal Mother.

The Lord dispenses justice in accordance with the merit and demerit of the soul and Laksmi through Her Beauty and Grace captivates the Lord and transforms His desire for justice (nigraha-sakti) into redemptive grace (anugraha-sakti) as She acts as a Mediatrix between the Lords and the jivas.

The Lord too, is innately gracious, but His grace is an 'initial' grace (krpa), which is common to all beings. By virtue of this grace one is impelled to seek refuge in Him. But the grace of Sri is specific grace (prasada). It is the saving grace, the action of 'condescension' of the Divine into the realm of being, which permits the soul to be released.

Sri Vaisnava Lineage (Sampradaya)

According to popular belief, the lineage (disciplic succession) of Sri Vaisnavism, originated from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sriman Narayana. He first revealed the doctrines of Sri Vaisnavism to His eternal consort Laksmi; She in turn revealed them to Visvak-sena the martial entourage of the Lord. He revealed them to Nammalvar (Satakopan), the first of the Alvars. And thus they have been handed down through a succession of spiritual masters knwon as acaryas, the 3 greatest of them being Natha muni, Yamunacarya and Ramanuja.

Alvars and the Disciplic succession

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto XI, chapter 5: verses 38 - 40

The inhabitants of Satyâ- and the other yugas, o King, want to take birth in Kali-yuga as in that time for sure, o great monarch, the devotees dedicated to Nârâyana are found left and right; especially in great numbers in the provinces of South India where those human beings who drink of the water of the rivers the Tâmraparnî, the Kritamâlâ, the Payasvinî, the extremely pious Kâverî, the Mahânadî and the Pratîcî, o lord of men, for the most part are pure-hearted devotees of the Supreme Lord Vâsudeva.
