I bow to SrI rAmAnuja, who is my highly venerable AchAryan. He knows the true nature of the three thathvams (entities), namely chith (those which are sentient), achith (those which are insentient) and param (supreme entity, SrIman nArAyaNa) who is distinctly different from and superior to chith and achith.
