taatparya (summary):
Although vaayu deva (mukhya praaNa) is all knowing, in the third avataar, when he was born as a  child vaasudeva to shree madhyageha bhaTTa, went through the prescribed rituals and procedures at the appropriate age, including the upanayana ceremony which is a prerequisite to start the study of veda.  Following the norms of normal human beings, the child vaasudeva started learning the philosophical treatises including all branches of vedas from a learned guru but did not require more than a moment to gain the complete knowledge.  All these episodes of his childhood are beautifully narrated in the third canto of the shree madhva vijaya.
