How is a Nithya Suri different from a jeevan Muktha?  What does eternal 
moksham mean?  I can understand jeevatmas attaining moksha through 
karma,bhakti or yoga maargam, and that is valid for jeevan mukthas;  are 
Nithya Suris created in Moksha itself (or does that sound too 
ignorant?);  Are Chakrathazvaar, Periya Thiruvadi etc Nithya Suris?   Are 
they Narayana amsam or Nara amsam? I presume jeevan Mokshas are nara 
amsam.  Are they(Nithya Suris) just variying manifestations of Sriman 
Narayanan?  If so, the line between Dwaitham and Vishistadwaitham become 
very feeble.
