Priya Devotees:

I am looking for the Tape (Upanyasam) which had the 18 reasons as to why
sri rAmAnuja was made to 
go back 18 times before he became qualified to receive the meanings of the

It was something like everytime sri rAmAnuja went to gOshti pUrNA, he was
asked to conquer

I would appreciate any information on this upanyasam (on info on it).
Please reply off list.
