Dear Shree/Shreemathi Anitha Seshadri,

1. "TharpaNam, Shraaddham" etc., are "Aagnyaa Karmas" for the son of
the Prapanna. Though the Mukthaatmaa does not have any need for it, his 
son who is in the still in material world has to do them as it is 
necessarily to be done as "Bhagavat Aagnyaaya Shreeman Narayana Preetyartham"
with "Saatvika Tyagam". One must not skip the nitya and naimitika aagnyaa
karmas - this is the reason why it is needed for the son to do them.

2. "Othaar MiKaarai Ellaiyaya Maamaya" - Alwar clearly states that
Shreeman Narayana is unparallelled and unsurpassed. An entity may
not have another entity which is equal. This unparallelled
nature always does not rule out unsurpassed nature. That is why
Alwar states it clearly the paratvam of Lord Hari.

3. Ekathandi Sanyasis are generally sanyasis following "Advaita".
On the other hand Thrithandi Sanyasis are those who follow
Parama Vaidika Matham which is Visishtadvaita Shree Vaishnavam.

Thanks & Regards
M.S.HARI Ramanuja Daasan.
