VEDANTA DESHIKAR

Melkote

Melkote is also known as Tirunarayanapura since it is the abode of Lord Tirunarayana.

Sri Ramanujacharya was a great saint of the eleventh century. It was he who spread the message of Srivaishnava religion. Those who propitiate the Lord through Mother Lakshmi, Narayana's Consort, -are called Srivaishnavas. From the days of Ramanuja, Melkote became a major center of Srivaishnava faith. Ramanuja lived there for eighteen years. It was he who built the shrine and installed the deity Chelvanarayana there. Who was this Vedanta - deshikar that had received such spontaneous honors from the young and old alike?
