As I had posted a question on popular philosophies of Hinduism. In one of the answer it is mentioned that Vaikhanasa is associated to Vishishthadvaita vedanta.
But when Vaikhanasa itself is called as "agama" how it can be associated with Vedanta which comes under nigama?
Among the Vaikhanasa sutras (grihya, shrauta etc) and related Samhita texts, are there any which acknowledge its association with the Vedanta?
Though there could be a commentary on Vedanta sutra by a vaikhanasa priest. But I want to know the references directly from their core texts. Because the followers may write commentaries on many subjects which may not be necessarily related to the actual ideology.
