The vaishnavas or dualists claim that souls/jivatmas are separate sparks of light that are distinct from the subtle body and resides within the cave of subtle body/antahkarana/hridaya and upon mukti these souls spend time in vaikuntha keeping their individualities and thus they are eternal.

The advaitins on the other hand holds onto the view that souls/jivas/jivatmas are not just the fragmental spark but includes the subtle body as well. Here the fragmental spark and subtle body together forms the entity called soul/jiva. And this entity keeps on transmigrating until it attains mukti. Mukti is attained, when all the mental impressions that are stored in the subtle body are burned out and then only atman remains. In other words, when these imprints are burned out, the subtle body which is the soul or jiva stops existing. The moment that happens our individuality stops existing. And then only atman remains.

These two views contradicts each other.

The vaishnavas says individuality remains after mukti but the monists says individuality ceases. The vaishnavas says jiva is just a spark but the monists says, jiva comprises both the spark & the reflecting medium called subtlebody. 

Which one is true? Need some serious answers here.
