Correct Answer - Option 4 : Ramanujacharya

The correct answer is Ramanujacharya.

  • Vishishtadvaita is one of the main branches of Vedanta, which itself is one of the six classic schools of Hindu philosophy.
  • It translated into 'non-dualism with differentiation'.
  • Ramanujacharya was the founder of Visistadvaita Siddhanta.
  • He believed that knowledge (jnana) and devotion (bhakti) were of equal importance.
  • According to Vishishtadvaita philosophy, Brahman is eternal, but also includes elements of plurality.
  • The soul, or the Self, and the material world both exist only through Brahman.
  • Unlike some Hindu philosophies, Vishishtadvaita doesn't see the world as simply an illusion, which would make it separate from Brahman. The material world is a part of Brahman's nature.
