 adiyEn would like to just add here that though the
 SriVaishnavAs have no concerns about what has
 been explained in dEvi bhAgavatham, SriVaishnava AchAryas
 are certainly _very much familiar_ with it. Personally,
 adiyEn knows Sri U.Ve. KarunAkaran swAmi, who has good
 knowledge about dEvi bhAgavatham. Its entirely a different
 issue as to whether the descriptions in that book are
 in accordance with vEdAs. Its thus obvious as to why 
 SriVaishnavAs don't make use of it for their needs.
