About : 

  • Mahaprabhu Vallabhacharya was born in 1479. A child of prodigious intellect, Vallabhacharya became intensely interested in study of philosophy and religion even at a young age. He propounded the philosophy of ‘Suddhadvaita‘ or pure monism. According to Vallabhacharya one need not renounce the material universe which is Divine in nature to realize God.
  • Vallabhacharya wrote several works including ‘Siddhant Rahasya‘, ‘Mukti Varddhini‘ and ‘Sanyas Nirnaya‘. He travelled all over India propagating his teachings among the people and finally settled down in Varanasi. Vallabhacharya took Samadhi in 1531.
