Dear Ambarish,

As far as I know, The aim of a Mumookshu(a person who wishes for
deliverance)  is only Nitya Kinkara, that is engaging oneself in the
continuous Service to the Lord in His Abode, Sri Vaikuntam.
This is the Visista Advaita view.

For Visista Advaita, Bhedam(The Individual soul and Suprme soul are
diffferent and their is a Servant- Master relationship between them) is
the hallmark.
Merging one with Lord(jeevan Mukthi) is a concept of Advaitins and not of
Visista Advaita.

Regards

KM Narayanan

Subject:  Could somebody clarify this?


Respected devotees,
                   I am new to the list and also Sri Vaisnavism. I heard
that according to VisisTa advaita, the goal of life is mukti by merging
in to the Lord. Another view that I have heard is that upon mukti, one
goes to the abode of the Lord, Sri Vaikuntham (Similar to Gaudiya
conception) and serves the Lord with the Nitya SUrIs. If both the facts
are correct then how can the two be reconciled. Could somebody please
elucidate this.

                                               Om Namo Narayana,
                                                       Regards, Ambarish
