RAMANUJA BEGINS HIS TEACHING
All the people of Kahcipuram were very surprised to hear that Ramanuja had taken sannydsa. He was still a young man, and his wife was extremely beautiful. Some considered him insane, but many others began to compare him to great devotees of the past; from all around people came to see him. The Vaisnavas who stayed at the dsrama at Kahcimade him their dcdrya, for his good qualities and understanding of the scriptures were well known.
Gradually, by ones and twos, disciples began to gather around him. His first disciple was Dasarathi, his nephew, who was famous for his knowledge of the Vedas. The second was a young man named Kuresa, who had a wonderful memory.
