Dear Srimathi Aandal:

Typically , Sri VaishnavAls belong
to one of the following AchArya paramparai:

A.Vadakalai/ Munithrayam
**************************
1.Sri Ahobila Matam 
2.Sri Parakala Matam
3.Sriamth PeriyANdavan of Srirangam
4.Srimath Poundarikapuram ANDavan of Srirangam 

TennAchArya SampradhAyam:
*************************

1.VaanamAmalai Srimath Kaliyan Jeeyar Swamy
2.SriperumbhUthUr EmbAr matam 
3.Thiruppathi Jeeyar
4.Sri Thirukkurungudi Jeeyar
5.Azhwar Thirunagari Jeeyar
6.Other AchAryAs I am not familiar with.

SvayamAchArya PurushAL
***********************

Yourself and your family should belong to one of
the above AchArya paramparai.

If you can not trace that paramparai 
from discussion with the elders in your family ,
You can choose one AchArya paramparai ,
receive pancha SamskArams from the Jeeyar 
and get initiated into that paramaprai.

Sumangali PrArthanai is in essence 
offering worship to a Sumanagali or Sumnagalis
( Presentation of Pudavai, Ravikkai
ThuNdu ,Kumkumam , ThAmbhUlam and BhOjanam).

The MahA and nithya Sumangali , the object of 
worship in Sumnagali prArthanai is none other than
our ThAyAr , MahA lakshmi.
Best wishes,
V.Satakopan

AchArya sambhandham is very ,very important
for Sri VaishNavALs.

Best Wishes,
