Adiyen certainly accepts what Sriman Srinath Chakravarthy has posted.

Adiyen posted the note only to point out about the uniqueness and the
utmost superiority of Sriman Naarayana who is the very brahman
extolled by Wodeyavar Ramanujar as the Brahman in Thirumala. Also
wanted to make a small note about the unique word "nArAyanA" which
can be split in as; narAnAm ayanam yasya saha.

Yathirajar Composed the Sri Bhaashyam in tirumala where in the very
first mangala slokam equates the para-brahman with Sriman Naarayana.

Adiyen posted the note only to point out about the uniqueness of
narAyana. Adiyen by mistake forgot to punch this line.
