Brahman OR para Brahman of advaita is "I am."
> And this 'I am' jnAnaM should be upAdhi rahita, vishesha rahita, kevala svarUpa jnAnaM. Then only we can bravely declare the below.
There is nothing like it i Shiva or Vishnu.
> there is shiva, there is vishNu, there is jagadaMba and there indeed vividha deva- devata-s and the difference in the worshipping of respective deities in a vedic way as long as we are identifying ourselves with BMI.
There is only Brahman and "I am that Brahman" this is the understanding. Everything else is just upAdhi bheda.
> yes, this upAdhi bheda is not a problem in vyavahAra where there is bhedha between upAsaka, upAsya, upAsanaM. As long as we are not trying to rank the vishNu-shiva and to prove the supremacy of one over another, this bheda is in a way good for the different ways of worship :-)
Anyway, this is what my thought on bheda between vishNu & shiva in dvaita vyavahAra.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
