Here what ever points I have mentioned are all facts,
Even today madhvas and vishistadvaithi's won't respect other gods much
especially shiva,they treat other gods as dummy gods...they treat vishnu as
the only superior god.These are all because of their guru madhva and
ramanuja's mean meantality....
I got these informations from a book "Jagath guru Adi shankara"...by kota
In this book he briefly compares all three acharyas...the main points in
that book are mentioned by me in this email....
Please tell your valuable comment...
