The always undeluded, unobstructed, free of sloth, and free of filth; that Ananda Tîirtha, the incomparable, I salute, who is the remover of all misery
Dear “Sri HARI” VAYU and Gurugalu devotees,
Before knowing about the Dvaita philosophy (which is originally called as Tatvavaadha philosophy), I would like to tell you about the great Saint of the three worlds who is respected by Chandra,Indra,Rudra devathas and he is none other than “Acharya Madhva” . He is the great exponent of the Dvaita School of philosophy. Dvaita is employed to indicate this difference between God’s infinite perfection and the finiteness of everything else. His Vaishnavism is called Sad-Vaishnavism in order to distinguish it from the Sri-Vaishnavism of Ramanujacharya. According to his philosophy, the Supreme Being is Vishnu or Narayana.
This universe is real and is not Mithya or an illusion. The finite beings comprising the universe are subject to a system of gradation, beginning with the Goddess Laxmi, followed by other minor gods, seers, human beings and undivine beings. The rank of any soul in this scheme of gradation depends on the degree of its devotion to God. God is an embodiment of all virtues and excellences and ever remains untouched by any kind of blemish (Dosha). He has countless Roopas and forms.
Every follower of the Madhwa School should have a firm belief in the Pancha-bheda—five real and eternal distinctions. The distinction between one Jiva and another Jiva (jeeva-jeeva), between the Jiva and matter (jeeva-jada), between one piece of matter and another (jada-jada), between matter and spirit (Jada-Deva), between the Supreme Being and the individual soul (Deva-Jeeva).
