Mīmāṃsaka (मीमांसक) refers to “philosopher; one who adheres to the mīmāṃsā philosophical doctrine. It usually refers to those who follow the karma-mīmāṃsā of Jaiminī”. (cf. Glossary page from Śrīmad-Bhagavad-Gītā).
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
