Madhvacharya supports siddha-deha?

"The Vedānta Sūtras specially discuss the question of how the released spirits enjoy themselves at all, as they have transcended the material plane and have no physical bodies or sense organs and answer the question [4.4.10-16] from different standpoints consistent with the trans-empirical character of the released state. The Sūtrakāra says, for instance, that the released souls can fashion at their will (which is also satyasaṁkalpa in conformity with God's will) suitable bodies out of Shuddhasattva or enjoy themselves with their own spiritual bodes composed of cit, ānanda, etc."

- Philosophy of Sri Madhvacharya, p. 448
