Paola Magnone said,

>1) Padma PuraaNa, UttarakhaNDa 71,100 (VeGkaTezvara):

 >  smarttavyaH satataM ViSNur vismartavyo na jaatu cit //
 >  sarve vidhiniSedhaaH syur etasyaiva vidhiMkaraaH //

>2) and 3) do not appear in the zlokaanukramaNii.

What to make of this?  I have heard that there is a separate
recension of the P.P. in Bengal.  Should I assume that
Ruupa is simply using a different MSS. line?  If the other
reading is more popular, why?  Is Ruupa's version a
special Vai.s.nava tradition?

P.S. even the first verse (smartavya.h....) is different in the
Bhakti-rasaam.rta-sindhu. The last pada reads "syur etayor
eva ki.mkaraa.h"
