रामानुजानां विशिष्टाद्वैतमते भेदाभेदवादापेक्षया तावत् वैलक्षण्यं नास्ति
अपितु विशिष्टाद्वैतमतस्य आधारस्तम्भेषु अन्यतमः भेदाभेदवाद एव। एवं सति
यादवप्राकाशाः अद्वैतवादिनः इति केचित् रामानुजीयाः घोषयन्ति इत्यत्र कोऽपि न
विस्मयः । प्रायः भेदाभेदवादादेव नैकतत्त्वानि प्राप्य भेदाभेदवादबोधकगुरोः
निन्दा न समीचीनम् इति मन्यन्ते ।
