Re: outmode forms

I ask a simple question:

Is crossing the ocean still considered equivalent
to losing all sense of Suddham, as our ancient
acharyas thought? Since our present acharyas
accept us freely even though we cross the ocean,
and some of the swamis even come across the
ocean themselves these days when a Desika
or Ramanuja would never have done so, can we
not say that this form of acharam is outmoded?
