Three Relationships between God and the Individual

According to the three schools of Vedanta, there are three relationships between God and the individual.

The dualistic school looks upon man as a soul, and God as the supreme Person, eternally different from man.

According to the qualified monistic school, God is the supreme Person and the repository of all auspicious qualities. Individual souls are parts of God, even as sparks of fire are parts of fire. God is the Soul of souls.

According to the non-dualistic school, the individual and God are identical in their divine essence; nothing exists other than Brahman. Everything else is illusory like a mirage on the deserts, vanishing on the dawn of Knowledge.
