Book Description

The beauty of the Visistadvaita lies in the conception of a God head of attributes or gunas, whose playground is the entire universe from whom all the animate and inanimate emanate and in whom all merge ultimately. This goes as a compromise between absolute monism of Adi Sankara and the distinctive separation of Deva and Jiva of Ananda Tirtha, the famous Madhvacharya.

Another important aspect is that, if Sankara’s Advaita preaches salvation through discard and denial of vices and worldly aspects and realisation of the Godhead through introspection, the Visistavaita accepts the social obligation of jiva as ‘Dehin’ and teaches the way to be away from the phenomenal world but to live within it, by surrending the fruits of action at the Feet of that Supreme Bliss manifested in the form of Srimannarayana. The concept of Godhead with attributes in a way paved the way for a better socio-ethical approach and made the religion more acceptable to common man.

It is, therefore, no periphery of the vast ocean of the Divine Ambrosia. But Sri. A.S. Raghavan, the venerable author who delved deep into this unique philosophy presents it to the theistic public in a delightful manner.

T.T Devasthanams is happy to bring out a reprint of this popular publication.
