VAsource Part 1

Dear Prapatti Members,

The following is a list of important material that define and strengthen the
foundation of Visishtaadvaita. 

This list covers only some sanskrit and Manipravaala works. A while agao, i 
maileda list of publications on Sri Ramanuja and his works. Iam in the process 
of updating that list based on some additional informations/books that I have 
procured in the recent past. I'll post the updated list when it is complete as
VAsource_part2. I coined the term VAsource for VisistAdvaita Source. I believe
these collections and those to be listed in part2 are complete list of 
publications related to Visistadvaita and the aachaaryas belonging to the 
system. Many of the texts listed here are out of print, and some do not seem 
to have publication dates. It would be a great contribution to track down some 
of these publications for reprints.

Regards,

Venkatesh K. Elayavalli
