Lord Vishnu alone is Supreme and highest in all respects.
The entire universe is truely and ultimately real.
The five-fold difference is fundamental.( jeeva-isha, jeeva-jeeva, jeeva-jada, jada-isha, jada-jada )
The entire group of conscious beings are all dependant on Lord Vishnu.
The souls are inherently graded as higher and lower according to their intrinsic ability.
