In my previous question, I have talked about him doing the mass initiation against the orders of his guru but this question is related to his own initiation.
He approached Thiurukottiyur Nambi for initiation into Vaishnava mantra. But he was refused not once or twice but for 17 times!.
Usually, traditional gurus do not refuse genuine seekers.
So on what grounds was rAmAnuja not given the mantra so many times?
Was he considered unfit for the sacred mantra?
