  A small note as adiyEn heard during kAlakshEbam :
  
  Sage VyAsa didn't enquire about VaikhAnasa Agamas in the 
  Brahma sUtras because it was extremly clear that it was 
  faithful to VEdas. But, pAncarAtra had some apparent 
  contradictions with vEdas (due to the lack of understanding
  of certain passages, similar to how certain passages in
  Upanishads were difficult to understand and hence enquiry was
  made into those passages in Brahma sUtras) and that problem was 
  needed to be sorted out and thus Sage VyAsa made an enquiry into 
  it. Though Sage VyAsa declared it to be an authoritative text,
  some have mis-interpreted it to be un-authoritative as you 
  know.

  adiyEn rAmAnuja dAsan,
  anantapadmanAbhan
  krishNArpaNam.
