When any one wants to know about a guru, he needs to be introduced by someone who had greater understanding about his work, teachings, glory etc. We are going to learn about Bhagavath Ramanuja's greatness, divine qualities, His reverence for Acharyas' as well as their works and contributions, His respects for Azhwars and their Arulichyals through Ramanuja Nootrandhadhi composed by Koil Peria Nambi ( Thiruvarangaththamudhanar)

Let us dwell on the Sixty-First Pasuram of Ramanuja 

In this pasuram, Amudhanar says Bhagavath Ramanuja was sought after by Mahans who observed Nithyanushtanam and he was also a great Tapasvi who took to prapatti. Amudhanar says that while Mahans were seeking Bhagavath Ramanuja but he out of his karunyam, searched and reached out to such lowly people like him, swampled with bad karmas and actions and took control over their life. Bhagavath Ramanuja's fame grew leaps and bounds even after giving refuge to people like him. The entire vast world was taken by surprise by this miracle.
