Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
viz., dvaita, advaita, dvaitadvaita, visistadvaita etc.- all become the manifestation of God which is a reality. Therefore the devout devotee who has realized 'Vasudevah sarvam' (All is God), does not insist on a particular sect (opinion) but respects all sects equally. As he does not insist on any sect, so he never disrespects any sect. It means that unity by virtue of love is superior to the unity through knowledge. In knowledge distance and distinction are wiped out, but intimacy (Abhinnata) is not developed. But in love distance, distinction and separation—all the three come to an end. Therefore in love (devotion) there is real non-dualism. In love there is so much power that by it a devotee becomes the favourite deity of even God. The shivers following the path of knowledge, regard salvation the Supreme, then how can they realize the glory of love or devotion (premabhakti or parabbakti). (Parebhakti is the Supreme devotion in which a devotee has a unique attraction for God which increases every moment?) In salvation there is 'akhanda ananda' viz., constant bliss (relish) but in love there is endless bliss which increases every moment. This 'Premamukti' is far superior and is the more advanced stage to salvation, Self-realization, realization and 'Kaivalya' etc.
