After thus passingone year at SrTSaila, hearing the Rdmdyana from Acarya SailapOrna, Ramanuja decided to return to SrT Rahgam. When he came before SailapOrna to offer his respects before de¬parting, that elderly disciple of V^munacarya said to him, "My son, having you with me here for this last year has given me great pleasure. Now if there is anything that you desire from me, just ask, and, if jit is within my power, I will give it to you.To this Ramanuja replied, "0 Mahatma, please give me your disciple Govinda. That is my only request.SailapOrna assented at once, and so it was with great happiness that Yatiraja set off for Sri Rahgam in the association of his beloved cousin. After travelling for several days they came to the city of KancTpuram, where Ramanuja and Govinda had grown up together.
