Note:

One day Ramanuja enquired who among the number of his disciples was willing to vol- unteer service at Venkatachala to supply flowers, etc., to God Venkatanatha there. Most of them shrank from it as the place was cold and otherwise uncomfortable for a permanent residence, while Anantarya bravely got up and offered his services. Ramanuja applauded his courage and sent him there, It is this that gave him the later name Ananta-purusharya (anda a:N piLLai – in Tamil), purusha being the equivalent of a manly man. The descendants of Swami Anantazhvan also have the surname Anandanpillai.
