SRI RAMANUJACHARYA

He looked around and started seeing the big tower of the temple and lot of people walking by. When he asked one of the passerby what was the place, he was told that it was Kancheepuram. Immediately he realized the drama played by Lord Sriman Narayana and Lakshmi to bring him safely to Kancheepuram and thanked them for their blessings.

At home Ramanuja's mother was very sad as she was thinking that she could not see him for the next few months until he returns from his tour.  All of a sudden when Ramanuja went and fell on her feet she could not believe it at all. Ramanuja then told the entire story of what happened to him. She enquired about Govinda and both prayed to Lord VaradarajaPerumal for the safe return of Govinda.

After a few months Yadavaprakasa returned to kancheepuram He was shocked to see Ramanuja. But he did not show any thing to him and enquired about Govinda and what happened to him. Yadavaprakasa told that he had stayed in Kalahasti.

A few days later, Yamunacharya(Alavandar), a great saint from Srirangam  came to Kancheepuram. He saw Ramanuja passing by along with Yadavaprakasa. When Alavandar saw Ramanuja, he was attracted by his personality and prayed to Lord Ranganatha of SriRangam to make Ramanuja serve Ranganatha Himself.
