On nAdopAsana

Dear Shree Vaishanvas,
(I wanted to write this mail after few communications on nAdOpAsana)

Our Shree Sampradaayam which is Visishtaadvaita Shree Vaishnavam is
clearly established in the Sruthi, Smruthis and the Brahma Sutras.
Our Aacharyas have clearly ascertained the Tatva-Hita-Purushaartha.
I would like to just outline them (very briefly) as follows:

Tatva : Asesha Chit-Achit Prakaaram Brahma Ekameva Tatvam - VishNu
Hitam : Bhakthi or Prapatthi (either of these two ONLY)
Purushaartham : Eternal Service to Shree Vishnu's Lotus Feet at
Shree Vaikunta Paramapadam.

As far as the Hitam is concerned, Lord VaradaRaja of Kanchi has even
confirmed that the most suitable upaayam is only Prapatthi for this
period.

Nothing other than Bhakthi or Prapatthi is considered as "Saadyopaayam"
by the Prastaana Trayam or by our Aacharyas who explained the Prastaana
Trayam. "Siddhopaayam" is Shreeman Narayanan's divine lotus feet.

Thanks & Regards
M.S.HARI Ramanuja Daasan.
