Dear Sriman malola amaraprabhu dasa:

Jaya and Vijaya, residents, in fact the DwarapAlakas of Sriman Narayana were cursed by young sages who came to visit Sriman Narayan when Jaya and Vijaya did not let the munis into Vaikunta. As a matter of Fact also, Sage Brighu is know to have kicjed Lord Sriman Narayana in his chest.

Although Sri PrahalAda is a Dhanava like Vibheeshana, to the best of my knwoledge Sri Raghavendra Thirtha Swamiji is an incarnation of Pranadevatha ( Hanuman ), just like bhagavan Ramanuja who is an Incarnation of Adi Shesha.
 
to support this point, adiyEn quotes the following sloka :

Anantaha Pratamam Rupam LakshmanAstu tataha param |
BalabhadrAsta-thiyatu Kalo Ramanujaha smartaha ||

Adi shesha incarnates as Lakshmana in the Tretayuga and as Balarama in the Dvaparayuga and as Ramanuja in the Kali Yuga.

This verse to the best of adiyEn's knwoledge was printed in Sriman R.Padmanabhan's work - Bhagavan Ramanuja - LIFCO Publishers.

adiyEn will send you more details about Sri Madhava Charya soon. 

adiyEn malola narsimhadasan ,

Malolan Cadambi.

  Subject: Sri Prahlada via Sanku Karna


  Dear Devotees of the Lord,

  i have two questions regarding Sri Prahlada via Sanku Karna.
  Madhvas proofing by quoting Narasimha Purana that Sanku Karna incranated
  as Sri Prahlada due to a curse of Brahma. Further they quote Narasimha
  Purana that in Kali Yuga Sri Prahlada incarnated as Sri Raghavendra
  Tirtha Swamij to bless mandkind.
  My question is if Sanku Karna is a resident of Sri Vaikuntha, how he can
  be cursed by Brahma?
  Second: Sri Vaisnavas see Sri Raghavendra Tirtha Swami as a incarnation
  of Sri Prahlada too ?
  Thank you very much for help
  Your amaraprabhu Dasa
  Namo Narayana !
