     Dear Sri Badri,
     
     Well the following is not a real answer for your 2nd question but I 
     just want to share what I read as an answer for a similar question in 
     Thuglak, a Tamizh magazine. Certainly not from VisisTAdvaitha point of 
     view, but a general, logical, HUMOROUS answer for a question from a 
     dejected man.
     
     Q. In Bhagavadh Gita , Krishna says, He will take avataar, whenever 
     dharmam declines, to destroy the bad and safeguard the good and the 
     dharma. If so why has he not taken His avataar yet.
     
     Ans. (In Cho's usual sense of humour) You are right. He has to destroy 
     the bad but to safeguard the good, He is waiting for one to be born.
     
     Though this is not a fitting reply to your question, it certainly 
     makes everybody to think.
     
     Posted just in a lighter vein.
     
     adiyEn rAmAnuja dAsan,
     
     Thirumalai Vinjamoor Venkatesh

Dear friends
I have the following doubts.
     
How do the vedas describe Narayana?.Is he described as 
formless.If  he is formless why do we associate him 
with a particular form.For example having the 
Changu,Chakra Gatha etc.If iam not wrong I think even 
Krishna states in Gita that he is formless and takes 
the human form only when dharma is in decline.
     
My second question as Krishna cleraly states that he 
will take and Avathar when dharma is in decline,why is 
he yet to take an Avathar.Does it mean that we have 
Dharma prevailing all over the world ?
Regards
     
Badri
