Dear Bhaktas,

The onging discussion on sri vaishanvas based on Vaikanasa and PAnchrAtra
findings are interesting.  But I have few observations in this regard.  The
Madhwas (Dwaitha philosphy followers) also worship Vishnu as the Supreme God
but do not give place/significance to Mahalaxmi ( periya pirati) as Sri
vaishnavas do.  That is why Sri is prefixed to differentiate Sri Vaishnavas
( one who always worship Vishnu along with Mahalaxmi)  to pure Vaishnavas
 only vishnu worshippers).  So mostly after Sri Madhwacharya period   the
difference must be surfaced for distinguishing the sect/cult.
