Explanation:

Ramanuja, born in Tamil Nadu in the eleventh century, was deeply influenced by the Alvars. According to him the best means of attaining
salvation was through intense devotion to Vishnu.
Vishnu in His grace helps the devotee to attain the
bliss of union with Him. He propounded the doctrine
of Vishishtadvaita or qualified oneness in that the
soul even when united with the Supreme God
remained distinct.
