  Dvaita - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dvaita, a school of Vedanta (the most widespread Hindu philosophy) founded by Shri Madhvacharya, stresses a strict distinction between God and souls.
Dvaita, or Dualistic philosophy, also known as Bheda-vâda, Tattva-vâda, and Bimba-pratibimba-vâda, is the doctrine propounded by Ananda Tîrtha (also known as Madhvacharya) that asserts that the difference between the individual soul or jîva, and God,(Îshvara or Vishnu), is eternal and real.
The Dvaita doctrine was summarized by Vyasa Tirtha as comprising nine tenets or prameyas.

 Madhvacharya - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dvaita school belongs to the Realist school of Indian philosophy, in the same category as Samkhya, Nyaya, Vaisheshika and Purva mimamsa schools.
Dvaita, or Dualistic philosophy (known severally as Bheda-vâda, Tattva-vâda, and Bimba-pratibimba-vâda), asserts that the difference between the individual soul or jîva, and God,(Îshvara or Vishnu), is eternal and real.
Madhvacharaya during his time not only established dvaita philosophy, but also displayed extraordinary strength and skills to show that he is the third avatara of Vayu, who came down to earth to help people suffering from delusional philosophies and guide them in the right path.

 [Advaita-l] Re: The current advaita-dvaita debate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Even though various debates were held against Advaita, one should note that, Advaita not the only school that dvaita refuts, its a common mistake that people think that Dvaita was formed only to refute Advaita, all 21 schools are refuted.
IF you look back into your own history, there are records, AppayaDikshit was defeated on a daily basis, VIdhyaRanya etc., all faced the challenges and they were all more well-versed, but finally they bow down to their opponents.
So if you as an individual, thinks Dvaita or anything else is not a good fit for you, you are welcome to do so.

 [Advaita-l] Re: The current advaita-dvaita debate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
I believe Vidyashankars' point was that if Dvaita had been the perfect expression of Vedantic theory (or even if it was a perfect criticism of non-Vaishnava schools) it would not have been necessary to start any new darshan.
At least in the case of Vallabha this couldn't be due to a lack of familiarity with Dvaita doctrines.
The Dvaita conception of the relationship between jivas and Ishvara would also be criticised on similiar grounds.

The Dvaita or "dualist" school of Hindu Vedanta philosophy originated in 13th-century CE South India with Sri Madhvacarya (Madhva).
The main tenet of Madhva's Dvaita Vedanta is that the Vedic tradition teaches a fundamental difference between the human soul or atman and the ultimate reality, brahman.

Hence, relativizing the validity of dvaita only as long as one is in ignorance of real knowledge, is a rejection of dvaita.
Dvaita accepts the distinction between Parabrahman and Jivas (and the latter's dependence on the former) to be an absolute fact which cannot be transcended in experience, at any time, even after the dawn of knowledge.

All in all, a reinterpretation of dvaita in the light of advaita is possible, but you have to give up the doctrine of the five differences, and such hierarchical subsuming has also been going on for quite some time.
But a reinterpretation of advaita according to dvaita is just not possible.

The root of all language of bhakti is grounded in dvaita, such as pujya-pujaka (worship- worshipper), upasya-upasaka (worship-worshipper), and so on.
Thus dvaita is reflected in the language itself.

 Conceiving the canon in 'Dvaita Vedanta': Tradition and innovation in Madhva's 'Rgbhasya'
This dissertation examines the way in which Madhva (1238-1317), a medieval Hindu philosopher and saint who founded the philosophical system commonly called Dvaita Vedānta, interpreted a body of canonical literature known as the Rgvedic hymns.
Madhva's controversial interpretation, which claimed that the hymns taught the supremacy of the deity Vis&dotbelow;n&dotbelow;u above all other gods as well as His complete distinction from the individual human soul, was a deliberate attack on established Vedic exegetical norms, particularly Śankara's Advaita Vedānta.
By looking at Madhva's Vedic exegesis in historical perspective, my dissertation challenges lingering Orientalist presumptions of a monist essence to the Hindu philosophical tradition and contributes to emerging scholarship that seeks to explore the Veda's dynamic and evolving role as a canon in Brahminical Hinduism.
