Dvaita and Visishtadvaita

One of my good friends who is a member of the Cyber Madhava Sangha 
says he has a simple definition which proves that Dvaita is more 
`down to earth'. 
He says that there has to be two entities: Bhagawan and the Bhakta or 
the Seeker and the Sought. If God is within us, how can we seek him, 
he asks (in the Dvaita mailing list).
I was unable to post a proper reply. Can anyone help me out?
