After attaining Paramapadham does one perform kaimkaryam for Bhagaawaan
or kaimkaryam for Emperumaanaar [Ramanuja]- Why do we argue? Here in this
world, Bhagawath kaimkaryam is the ultimate. Better than that is BhAgawatha
kaimkaryam. The grandest of all is Acharya kaimkaryam. It is very explicit
here as Kaimkaryam to the Acharya saarvabhouman Ramanuja is the most
important of all. Because of His kalyANa guNAs, everyone does that and
enjoys doing the same. Thus, Anudhanaar says: seeing what good the divine
naamam of Emperumaanaar has done to Him, it can be understood by everyone.

There is no other enjoyment for me except for Your Lotus Feet. And obtaining
this enjoyment too is also by means of taking refuge at Your Lotus feet. You
have blessed this knowledge or realization in those Bhagawathas who have this
truthful jn~Anam and also to adiyEn who had no such realization or any
jnAnam/qualification. Your mercy and dayA on me is without expecting
anything in return from adiyEn. aiyO! If I attempt to describe this greatness
of such Greatest compassionate nature, then, words do not come to my rescue.
It is better to simply keep quite, only thinking silently of Your Greatest

Sapthathi.
We adopt Ramanuja's feet as our refuge. Saadhus would treat Ramanuja's
feet as ideal, placing even the Lord's feet at a second position only. These feet
would secure for the surrendered ones, the three goals, (Dharma, artha,
kaama,) as well as mOksha. They are potent in correcting tendencies of
weaklings.
