If sandhyavandana is used as a necessary criterion for
being said to study the Vedas, then sannyasis of the Maadhva
(and, I suppose, Shankara) order also "cannot be said
[to] study the Veda or that they are Vaidikas in
the same sense as other traditional scholars in India." However,
this can't be what you were implying, was it?
