Even in Vishisthataadvaita, Brahman is infinite. Jeevas and Jagat form the part of Brahman as it was pointed out that Brahman has no sajaati, vijaati bhedas but has swagata bhedas.

Ø     Brahman has Swagata bheda ?? Do we advaitins agree to this??  Yes as per Sri Vikram prabhuji and here Sri Sada also seems to agree like in advaita even in vishishtAdvaita there is svagata bheda in brahman !!??  Here is Sri Vikram’s observation in his alignment article :

//quote //

VA: In Brahman there is no sajatiya bheda and there is no vijatiya bheda; however, there is svagata bheda or internal distinctions in the form of distinctions between Brahman, Jiva and Jagat 11 14.

A: Brahman being the one and only efficient & material cause of the manifested universe implies there is no sajatiya or vijatiya bheda in Brahman. But the manifestation of distinct names and forms, by maya, implies the existence of internal differences or svagata bheda in the form of distinct parts.


  *   Leaving it to other prabhuji-s to comment.

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
