Mayavadi Philosophers - an essential subject

From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Mayavadi philosophy states that God is not a person; in other words, they believe in an impersonal form of the Lord. According to them, after one's death, one merges into the Brahman effulgence (which is considered as the Supreme by them). Hence, they preach that God is not a person but is merely a superior form of energy. This theory goes against the very grain of Vaishnava philosophy which states that God is a person, and that one can only attain to the supreme abode if we perform devotional service to Him with loving emotions in our hearts. Questions then arise; which theory is right and how do we know so?
