SrI vishNu sahasranAmam related.

Dear Bhakta-s:

Many of you who follow the postings on the above might have noticed
that I only refer to interpretations from the viSisTAdvaita and the
advaita AcAryas, or those who follows these disciplines.  After having
been involved in this kaimkaryam for over three years and having
covered close to 600 nAma-s, I am convinced that the anubhavam of
SrIman nArAyaNa's guNa-s crosses the philosophy to which one
subscribes.  The only requirement to enjoy His guNa-s is to enjoy His
guNa-s.  The only reason I have not covered the interpretations of some
of the other major schools is because I do not have access to these
additional interpretations.  This note is to appeal  to the members of
this group that if they have access to any additional  interpretations
from scholars belonging to these other schools, they please forward
these additional sources to me so that I can draw from them and share
whatever I understand from these additional sources.  I have read that
there is a detailed vyAkhyAnam by a dvaita AcArya on SrI vishNu
sahasranAmam, but I have not been to locate a copy.  This request
applies to any other vyAkhyAnam-s that people are aware of as well, in
addition to the ones that I quote from.  The only constraint I have is:
 I know a little bit of English, tamizh, Hindi, and samskRt.  I cannot
read or understand any other language.
