By Swami Harshananda

Sometimes transliterated as: Ubhayavedanta, UbhayavedAnta, Ubhayavedaanta


Ubhayavedānta literally means ‘Vedānta that accepts both’.

Vedānta has branched off into three main streams:

  1. Advaita
  2. Viśiṣṭādvaita
  3. Dvaita

Unlike the Advaita and the Dvaita philosophies which accept only the prasthānatraya to be authoritative, the Viśiṣṭādvaita of Rāmānuja[1] accords equal status to the Sanskrit prasthānatraya to the Divyaprabandham.[2] Hence it is called Ubhayavedānta. Ubhayavedānta is the Vedānta that accepts both the authorities.
