In few upanyasams by Srivaishnava scholars, on the question of what is Brahman, I have come across this verse from Taittirīya Upanishad -

Yato vā imāni bhutāni jāyante; yena jātāni jivanti; yat prayantya-bhisamviśanti; tat vijijnāsasva; tat Brahmeti.

How does the explanation of this verse differ between advaita and visishtadvaita?

    If you are asking for list from other samparadayas, then this question could be closed as too broad. Already 1 close vote being too broad! – Parabrahman Jyoti Dec 28 '18 at 3:48

    @AkshayS I didn't ask for "the entire" list. I said "some other key verses". Besides, a person answering the question might stick to one or 2 sampradayic details. That will certainly not fall under "too broad". – Ambi Dec 28 '18 at 3:51

    How much is a "some"? Few, some etc., are subjective and not suitable to describe on a Q&A site. What are key quotes is also subjective. So, this is likely to get closed as too broad or primarily opinion based. A user might quote two sampradayas. But still the quotes nor quotes are over neither the sampradayas. This gives rise to more and more incomplete answers. Such list questions are discouraged. – Sarvabhouma Dec 28 '18 at 4:47

    @Sarvabhouma And how much is "broad"? The word "key" is the qualifier that restricts broadness. "But still the quotes nor quotes are over neither the sampradayas." - what does this mean? Close the question if thats what needs to be done. – Ambi Dec 28 '18 at 5:46

    @Sarvabhouma By that logic, every answer from a samparadaya perspective is incomplete, because the depth can be increased by another learned person. Anyway, I think we are unnecessarily devolving in to wordplay. I can find many such questions which invited a wall of text as answers, but it is not a good use of both of our energies and time to get in to a tussle on that. Like I said, if the community votes it out, so be it. – Ambi Dec 28 '18 at 6:07
