– Why are the four-authorized sampradaya Acharyas distinguished from each other?

– Sri Ramanuja, Sri Madhva, Sri Vishnuswami, and Sri Nimbaditya are the four Vaishnava Acharyas. Many others also became Vaishnava Acharyas, and they are certainly followers of one of the four above-mentioned Acharyas.

Sri Ramanuja is the propounder of visistadvaita philosophy, Sri Madhva is the profounder of suddha-dvaita philosophy, Sri Vishnuswami is the propounder of suddhadvaita philosophy, and Sri Nimbaditya is the propounder of dvaitadvaita philosophy. (Sajjana-toshani 1-1)

– What preaching responsibility did Sri Caitanya entrust upon Sri Nityananda, Sri Advaita, Sri Rupa, Sri Sanatana, Sri Jiva Goswami, and others?

– Sriman Mahaprabhu empowered and ordered Sri Nityananda Prabhu and Sri Advaita Prabhu to preach the glories of Sri Harinama.

He empowered and ordered Sri Rupa Goswami to reveal the science of bhakti-rasa.

He ordered Sri Sanatana Goswami to preach about vaidhi-bhakti and its relationship with raganuga-bhakti.

He also ordered Sri Sanatana Goswami to reveal the relationship between the manifest and unmanifest pastimes of Gokula.

He empowered Sri Jiva Goswami through Sri Nityananda Prabhu and Sri Sanatana to reveal the science of sambandha, abhidheya, and prayojana. (Jaiva Dharma Chapter 39)

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
