Dear Shree Malolan Cadambi,

The incident that you have quoted regarding Brighu kicking the chest of
Lord Shriman Narayanan is not in Shree Vaikunta but only in Kshera-Saagara
which is not in the Shree Vaikunta. Another point to be noted that
neither Nitya not the Mukta returns to the material world as there is
no reason for it. Comming to material world is because of Karma. As 
the Nitya and Muktas do not have any Karma, they do not return to the
material world. But they "incarnate" as per the wish of Bhagavan which
is totally different from that of "material birth". They (nitya)incarnate 
for the benefit of the people here who are suffering due to lack to 
Brahma-Ignyaana. The curse to Jaya-vijaya is also to be considered in
this context only - to educate people in material world that 
"Bhaagavata Apacharam" is to be totally avoided. 

Thanks & Regards
M.S.HARI Ramanuja Dasan

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 !
