Ramanujiyas are the followers of Ramanuja. Ramanujiyas are distinguished by some peculiar rites and observances.
Ramanujiyas believed in the Visishtadvaita philosophy. The Visishtadvaita philosophy is the qualified non-dualism. According to Ramanuja's teachings, Lord Narayana or Bhagavan is the Supreme Being. Ramanujiyas believes that the individual soul is Chit and the matter is Achit.
Ramanuja regards the attributes as real and permanent, but subject to the control of Brahman. The attributes are called Prakaras or modes. Lord Narayana is the Ruler and Lord of the universe. The Jiva is His servant and worshipper. The Jiva should completely surrender himself to the Lord. The oneness of God is quite consistent with the existence of attributes, as the attributes or Shaktis depend upon God for their existence.
