Of Hari, Green & Radha

I would like to quote the following from Sri. S.M.S.Chari's "Vaishnavism".

Quote

1. Nimbarka  ..... was the founder of  Dvaita-dvaita vedanta. He developed
a Vaisnava cult under the name of Sanatkumara Naraday Sampardaya, which is
similar in several respects to that of Ramanuja. He maintains that Brahman
is Radha Krsna possessing the six principal attributes and many
 other auspicious qualities.

2. Vallabhacharya the founder of Suddhadvaita Vedanta .....
 advocated yet another type of vaisnavism. According to this school the
Bhagawan of Bhagavata Purana, or Lord Krsna is the highest Brahman.

3. Sri Krsna Caitanya ....... founded the .... Caitanya Vaisnavism. .......
 Bhagavan as Krsna is the Absolute Para Brahman ( and not an Avatara.)
The concept of Radha Krsna incarnate in Caitanya brings out the full import
of Krsna Lila.

In whatsoever way men approach Me, even so do I bless them, for whatever the
paths men may take in worship, they come unto Me.
