Kooratazhwar is considered to be the avatara of Sri Rama himself. He is an epitome of humbleness and person with unmatched guru bhakti. Although born into a rich family he gave away all his material wealth and became a shishya of Sri Ramanuja. He helped Ramanuja towards the composition of Sri Bhasyam.
