Re: Digest Number 462 clarification on Sri Vishnupurana

The following sloka is rightly cited from Indra krita Sristuthi in
Prathamamsha 9th adhyaya of Vishnupurana.

In  the Vishnupurana, we have the well-known sloka,

> Raghavatve Abhavat seeta RukmiNi Krishna janmani
> AnyeshuchavatArEshu VishnOrEshAnapAyinI

But the following citation is also found in the same Sristuthi of
Vishnupurana. But I wonder how Dr Mutthu Bhattar has quoted it from
Vaikhanasa Archana Navaneetham

> Dr Mutthu Bhattar quotes in the recent special issue of HayagrIva

> YATH YATHA JAGATH SWAMI
> DEVADEVO JANAARDHANA:
> AVATHAARAM KAROTHYASHAA
> TATHAA SRISTATHSAHAAYINI

> --Sri VaikAnasa ArchanA NavanItham: 5.28& 29


The following famous sloka is also a part of Sristuthi in Vishnupurana.

My doubt is whether the same passage "BhrigO: khyAtyAm......
TadhA SrIstatsahAyinI" is found in Vishnupurana as well as
VaikhAnasa ArchanA NavanEEtham also or it is an error?
