The Vaishavas

For Vaishnavas, the divine Self within is Vishnu Himself, qualitatively but not quantitatively. In other words, Vishnu is more than the Self and more than the universe. Likewise, when a Vaishnavite reunites with God upon liberation, his or her individual nature is not lost. Vaishnavites believe the soul is meant to be God's companions for eternity.
