I had earlier posted a query regarding the difference between Ranganathaswamy and Padmanabhaswamy. Seems like everything falls into place now. Tirumala's Balaji is not Vishnu, it is the Buddhist deity Avalokiteshwara or Padmapani. Similarly, Ranganathaswamy is a spitting image of 'reclining Buddha' whereas the Vedic deity Narayana is Padmanabhaswamy.
