A Brahmin from Southern India, Ramanuja lived in the 11th century and was famous for his non-dualistic views; he was not only a philosopher, but a religious reformer, as the Imperial Gazetteer explains. The Imperial Gazetteer mentions his prominence in the development of a non-discriminatory devotionalism (bhakti); and the Imperial Gazetteer devotes a separate account to the sect that followed his teachings.
