Doubt ?

Dearest Sisters and Brothers,

I happened to see this statement of Srila Prabhupada, from my ISKCON friend.
Whom is he referring to? Is he our Uttamoor Swami? Can someone clarify?

"Srimad Viraraghava Acarya, an acharya in the disciplinic succession of the
Ramanuja-sampradaya, has remarked in his commentary that chandalas, or
conditioned souls who are born in lower than sudra families, can also be
initiated according to circumstances. The formalities may be slightly
changed here and there to make them Vaishnavas." 

Thanks and Regards

Narayana Narayana
