Dear Sri Mani

Probably what Sri MAV mentioned and what Smt Sheela paraphrased as "mOksha
due to Sri rAmAnuja sambhandam" comes from the well know incident mentioned
in the Guruparampara prabhAvams, where Sriman nArAyaNan declared mOksham,
out of ecstasy, to all who have rAmAnuja sambhandam. This, however, does
not invalidate your point that, it is only the grace of Sriman nArAyaNan
which will enable the jeevAtmA to attain mOksham.

The first statement is more out of compassion towards swamy emberumAnAr, by
emberumAn Himself. So both are to be considered as parallels, though the
former, as you said, is not necessary. But sufficiency.....?, yes, it is
the word of emberumAn Himself. So the possibility is very much there that
it is sufficient.

But the point to be remembered is that, just undergoing pancha samskaram
and claiming that we have received the rAmAnuja sambhandam is utterly
wrong. Yes, we might have gained the sambhandam but we have to sustain it
with our "krtya karaNAs"(prescribed deeds). This is more like the saying
that " Sustaining is more difficult than Getting the ISO Certification".
Needless to explain here what is ISO certification.
