Srila Prabhupada ritvik System is called Vaisistya
Sri Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur:"'Although this concept of bhagavata-parampara appears to be new, it is based on the essential understanding of the scriptures.Something new given by an acarya but based on sastra is called vaisistya (a special
characteristic). Acaryas Ramanuja and Madhva both apparently introduced
something new, but because their teachings were based on sastra they
came to be accepted. Phalena pariciyate: "
An action should be understood by its result." My commitment to devotional service and my preaching activities speak for themselves. Owl-like persons cannot see this, but those who are honest will accept it.'"
