      Yes. I agree with your view point. Let us inform all other Madhwa brothers/sisters about this usage of Matha instead of Mutt.

      Hare Sreenivasa,

      Please let's use "Matha" instead of Mutt whenever we refer to our Madhva places of worship.  Mutt is a very demeaning word and its meanings are as below according to the dictionary.  Kindly refrain going forwards.   Regards, Rao
