There are different types of liberation namely:

Ekatva, or oneness with the Atma Salokya, or living in the same world as Vishnu Sarshti, or having the same opulences as Vishnu Samipya, or being a personal associate of Vishnu Sarupya, or having the same form as Vishnu

Sayujya, or having the same experiences as Vishnu

Bhagavatam talks about first 5 kinds of liberation.

Where is sayujya defined and talked about?

Why is sayujya considered topmost liberation by Shri Vaishnavas? Why are others inferior?

  • i think because only God is all chit and so always full of pure bliss and the objective of jeeva is to attain this state of pure bliss

  • Where did you get the idea that Sri Vaishnavas consider Sayujya as the topmost liberation?

  • Because according to Sri Vaishnavas sayujya mukti also contains all other mukti's.The liberated soul enjoys everything experienced by Brahman himself ,except the power of creation , maintenance and dissolution. Commented Jan 28, 2019 at 5:17
