Namaskaram Shri Subbu ji,

Agreeing on the difference. I will defer to Shri Krishna Kashyap ji for
sharing more details on SriVaikunta at maha-pralaya. I have heard some
conflicting theories and would rather withhold my opinion due to lack of
clarity & understanding.

However, the point I am trying to communicate is that the Advaita concept
of krama-mukti is aligned with VA at least until the maha-pralaya state and
therefore there should not be any reason for Visishtadvaitins for a
conflict or criticism on this point of moksha marga against Advaita. In
other words, from VA’s perspective, Advaita does not stand against VA at
least until maha-pralaya. Of course Advaita goes a step further in the form
of sadyo-mukti, but this should ideally not be a valid topic of criticism
either since VA doesn’t believe in this concept or its logic to begin with.

with humble prostrations,
