   "SREE BHOOMI NEELA SAMETHA SRILAKSMI NRUSIMHA PARABRAMANEYA NAMAHA"
   
 I)Chanting ashtaakshara
 
   dear sri vaishnavaas it is not adiyen's intention to decry any system of 
thought other than what adiyen belong to..
   
   Remember without any "poorvapaksham" and "siddhathma" sort of discussions 
nothing would have matreilaized
   
   IT IS ONLY I AM AGIANST THE VIEWS NOT AGAINST THE PERSON THER"S NOTHING 
PERSONAL ADIYEN TAKE WHENEVER WE DISCUSS ABOUT CONFLICTING VIEWS!!!
   
   once adiyens' father told me that it was necsaary and is necessary that we 
have arguments but they should always be only against the views if it has to be 
NO TIME THERE SHOULD BE ANY PERSONAL ATTACKS!!!
   
   if my postings have ever been taken as an offense please let adieyn do 
whatever "abaradha kshabbanaam" 
   
   
   
   II)Geetha and prapathi
   
  infact if one goes thro the geetha and the sequence in which the chapters 
appear it goes without saying prapathhi is the easier way!! remeber prapatthi is
  not an altogether different "PATH" it is only done as a easier way of "bakthi
  yoga".
  
  u do prapathi as u dont have "shakthi","balam" or any thing to do "bakthi 
yogam" which is the only direct path to mokshaa..
  
  the other paths make u a bakthi yogi 
  
  there are many bramha vidhyaas that are told in the vedas(32 adiyen believe 
please correct me if adiyen is wrong) and prapathi adiyen believe is referred as 
"nyasya vidhya"
  (adiyen is not sure please correct me again if adiyen is wrong)
  
  so prapatthi is not anything that is newly formulated or added concept..
  
  the essence of prapathi could be found all thro ramaayanaam/mahabaratham etc..
  
  
  it is requested that the Srivaishnava who posed the question go thro any 
authoratative texts from the SRIVAISHNAVA Scholars 'cos prapathi is again one of 
the distinct factors of "srivaishnavasim" and adiyen humbly feel the books that 
are available in the market(normally) reflect ore are less the nirvisesha 
adavaithin's view(the Shri Adhi Shankra sampradhyaa's) view and the view has 
already been thwarted by many other sampradhayaas typically  by "Srila SRI 
  Prabhu Paadhaa"(who needs lesser introduction).
