The book makes in seven chapters a comparative study of Visistadvaita and Dvaita schools in Vedanta. The first chapter makes an introductory comparison of the two traditions including brief biographies of Ramanuja [1017-1137 CE] and Madhva [1238-1317 CE]. Chapters two through seven compare the two Vedantic traditions in the areas of epistemology, ontology, theology, cosmology, psychology and soteriology. Interspersed among these chapters are five special topics, presented in debate style, which focus on the important differences of opinion between the two schools on issues such as the material causality of the Universe of God, Substance-attribute relationship, gradation in the experience of bliss by saved souls in Heaven, etc. Two appendices in the end briefly describe some of the differences in ecclesiastical organization and ritual matters among the two traditions.
