Dear Sri Bhadri,

You query is genuine and is well intended. Everyone gets such queries in the 
beginning.
Sri MS Hari of Singaproe has been writing tutorials on our sampradayam for 
beginners like us. You may like to browse them in 
http://members.tripod.com/~sriramanujar and click under Visistadvaita 
tutorial. They are basic lessons and will answer such doubts /queries. Get 
back if there is any doubt

Respected members of the group
I have been a member of this list for sometime, and have been keenly 
following whats being written. This is my first posting to the group.

We havent actually 'seen' the lord in person, but accept that he exists, and 
worship him in the archa form. My q is, is this knowledge abt the existense 
of the Lord a result of what we 'experience' and/or the proof provided by 
the scriptures and the works of our great alwars and acharyas?? Basically, i 
want to know whether it is at all possible for my faith in HIM to be just 
that, a complete faith, without looking for any pramaNa. Do I need to be 
told that fire is hot, or do i need to touch it and know for myself, or is 
it possible to just "know"??

Thanks in advance

sincerely
Bhadri
