Re: Clarification on Mahavishvasa - 2

Dear Sri Srinath,

Thank you for your insightful clarifications.  My intention in
this posting was to show the importance of the object of
prapatti, Sriman Narayana, as opposed to trying to develop faith
merely in the efficacy of prapatti, as the original question
indicated to me.   The role of the object of prapatti as being of
utmost importance has been elaborated upon by many AchAryans.
It seems that in making the posting more of a meditation on the
Lord's Greatness and Kindness, I inadvertently failed to describe
the absolute and unquestionable importance of the AchAryan as
being our only connection to Him.  My sincere apologies for this
inadvertent error on my part.

May I take liberties to state that the gaining of an AchAryan is
also due solely to Perumal's katAksham out of His Desire to Save
us, indicating further the need for humility and absolute faith
in the AchAryan, rather than having faith in our own actions?

With all due apologies,

adiyEn rAmAnuja dAsan
