    In  your posting, you have not explained anything contradictory to
 what adiyEn posted earlier. In your posting, you have only told that
 Bhakti and Prapatti are two alternative routes to different adhigAris
 and that  a bhakti yOgi may choose to opt for prapatti ( say he is
unable to wait further etc). You have not posted that bhakti  _will_
 end in prapatti performed for moksham.

  Can you please clarify whether  you still claim that bhakti (upAsanA)
  _will_  end with prapatti (for moksham) , while in the same breath
  maintain that bhakti and prapatti are two different sAdhyOpAyAs ?
