Sri Bashyam-Introduction..Dr.Saroja Ramanujam..

We shall first see the fundamental differences between the two schools advaita and visishtadvaita briefly in order to understand their arguments.

Advaita

  1. brahma sathyam- Brahman is real.
  2. jagath miThyaa- The world is unreal
  3. jeevo brahmaiva na aparaH- jeeva the individual soul is identical with Brahman.
  4. Brahman is attributeless undifferentiated consciousness- nirguNam nirviSesha chinmaathram
  5. Maya or avidhya is beginningless positive entity.
  6. Brahman is the sole cause of the universe like the rope to the snake.
Visishtadvaita

1.There are three reals- jagath, jeeva and eesvara.

2. The world of sentient and insentient beings is the sareera of the Lord.

3. The identity is one of inseparable oneness like body and soul.

4. Brahman is synonymous with Narayana, possessing infinite auspicious qualities.anantha kalyana guna visishtam

5. Maya is the power of the Lord controlled by Him.

6. Brahman is the sole cause of the universe, which is its effect but both the cause and the effect are real like the clay and the pot. The effect is only another state of the cause.
