Dear BhAgavatAs

Adiyen have few questions to know more about Grurpramapara lineage?

1) What kind persons are eligibile to ascend the Acharya Peetam?.
2) Is there any  selection process?
3) And more importantly, we have Mahalaksmi (Periapirati) in the
Guruprampara lineage next to sriman Narayanan.  But so far no female has
ascended the peetam.  Is there any specific reason for this other than their
physical nature?

Kindly pardon me for putting such a question ( esp. the last one) . But I
could not resist after reading the Guruparampara lineage posted in this
