Krish makes a good point here. Why is it that in spite of
the precedents set by Ramanuja, Pillai Lokacharya, and Manavala
Mamunigal, our acharyas lack social vision and don't care
to engage in any kind of reform activity? This is perhaps
why the Mutts have lost a following.  While they still attract
Vedic scholars, they have marginalized themselves in terms
of the greater society.
