Advaita follows Abheda Shruti, Dvaita Bheda Shruti. Vishishtadvaita follows Ghataka Shruti.

Abheda Shruti means passages from Shruti literature which talk about non-difference. Bheda Shruti means passages which talk about difference between Jivatma and Paramatma. What does Ghataka mean in this sense?

  • Dvaita is wrong connutation and its tattvada, this takes abheda vachanna and conveys the hidden meaning, and takes them in correct prespective tattvada doesnt ignore abheda.. where as advita does ignore the bheda shruti as aparrent.. – Prasanna R Dec 20 '19 at 4:25

Sharing meaning of 'Ghataka Shruti' as defined in wisdom library:

Ghaṭaka (घटक) refers to category of declaration on Brahman and Ātman.—Ghaṭaka-śruti refers to those affirming identity between Atman and Brahman.

I hope this is what you are seeking.

    The OP is asking literal meaning of Ghataka Shruti. He added already that Vishishtadvaitans follow Ghataka Shruti. "Why is it called Ghataka shruti" is the question. – Sarvabhouma Nov 20 '19 at 5:04
