For a prapanna, the path to realization is based on the pramANams that are based on the Srutis and the teachings of our sampradayic AchAryAs. These mahAns spend their life for the ujjeevanam of the baddha janams and show them the proper way to attain mOksha thru' the performance of prapatti to Lord Sriman NArAyaNan. Though many other deities exist, none of them has the power to grant the ultimate treasure (i.e) mOksham or grant the ultimate boon (i.e) eternal service to the divya dampathis at Sri VaikunTham. Sriman NArAyaNan alone is moksha dAyakan, the supreme lord of all others. In this unique and distinguishing aspect of EmperumAn, His consort Sri MahAlakshmi plays the central role of being the interceder on behalf of baddha jeevans for attaining moksham. It is Sruti pramANam that to perform the yaj~nam of baktha rakshaNam, EmperumAn needs thAyAr, His Divine Consort and cannot do the yaj~nam all alone by Himself. SrI (thAyAr) and Sriya: pathi (EmperumAn) are both involved in the process of aiding the jeevans in crossing the turbulent samsAric ocean to Parama Padam.
