एते काञ्चीपुरे निवसन्ति स्म । अद्वैतवेदान्तपण्डिताः । श्रीरामानुजाः एतेषां
सकाशे अद्वैतवेदान्तविषयान् पठितवन्तः । ’कप्यास’मन्त्रविषये एतैः सह
श्रीरामानुजाः चर्चामकुर्वन् । एते रामानुजानां विषये ईर्ष्यां प्राप्य
रामानुजान् मारयितुं प्रयतितवन्तः इति प्रतीतिः वर्तते । कालान्तरे
यादवप्रकाशाः भगवद्रामानुजानां सिद्धान्तं अङ्गीकृत्य तेषां शिष्यगणे अन्यतमा
अभवन् । रामानुजानां सकाशात् सन्यासं प्राप्य ’गोविन्दजीयर्’ इति सन्यासनाम
प्राप्तवन्तः ।
