Re: Question on Alvars

Concerning my extract from A. Govindacarya's Lives of the Holy Azhvars:

Govindacarya says that the quote is from Naradiya (Purana), Sri Mushna
Mahatmya, XI.

The incarnation of Sesha proclaiming the real purport of Vedanta is obviously
Ramanuja. But as to the question of the incarnation of Matarisva, I don't
know. Desika? Manavala Mahamunigal? Pillai Lokacharya? If anyone has any
ideas please let me know.
