harekrishna can any devotee explain what is achintana bhedha abhedha concept in gaudiya vaishnavism... who preached the concept for first time............? haribol jaya srila prabhupad
Hare Krishna Mataji,
Dvaita is where there are two separate entities which is GOD and YOU.
Advaita is where there is ABSOLUTELY ONLY ONE entity and nothing else.
Achintya bhedha abhedha - Achintya means inconceivable, Bheda means difference, abheda means non-different.
Caitanya Mahaprabhu, specified that the Supreme and the jīvas are "inconceivably, simultaneously one and different" (acintya-bheda-abheda). It is inconceivable to our senses as to how the Supreme and Jivas are divided and yet appear to be of the same properties. Hence it was termed as simultaneously one and different.
Maybe other devotees can expand on these.
We Follow the Teachings of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Maha Prabhu
Achintya-bhedabheda-tattva refers to the inconceivable oneness and difference of the Supreme Person and His energies. This is one of the key points of theistic philosophy taught by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. As parts of God's energy, we're also equal in quality with God, but there's a vast difference in quantity. We're each infinitesimal sparks of spiritual energy, and the Supreme Person, Krishna, is the infinite, supreme source of all energies.
Some parts of the Vedas say that all beings are one with God, and others say that God is different from all beings.Vedanta philosophers have long argued back and forth about this, but Chaitanya Mahaprabhu taught that both statements are simultaneously true.
To Explain Achintya-bhedabheda-tattva Through a Example :
Just as the sun is the source of heat and light, God is the ultimate source of all energy. The sun is inseparable from its rays, and God is inseparable from His energies. God and His energies are therefore nondifferent. At the same time, God and His energies are distinct. The sun and its rays are one, but they're also different: we can feel the sun's light and heat while the sun itself is millions of miles away.
Similarly, God is omnipresent by His energy but also maintains His distinct personal identity – His own name, form, qualities, home, activities, and associates. Since everything is a display of God's energy, God is simultaneously different (bheda) and nondifferent (abheda) from everything. This truth (tattva) is inconceivable (achintya) to the mundane mind. All that exists within the spiritual world and the material world is also God's energy, and therefore one with and different from God simultaneously.
All philosophies are correct when viewed from different standpoints and following the path that the respective philosopher has delineated. Acintya BhedaAbheda preached by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is considered to be the synthesis of both Advaita and Dvaita.
They are all correct.
To say Adwaitha philosophy is correct and also Dwaita philosophy is correct....
Is explained by Caitanya Mahaprabhu, as Achintya (beyond comprehension) Bedha (different) Abedha (One/same) Tatva

The only thing I will like to say is that.....
All philosophies of all different acharya is Right and eternal....
but the philosophy that was passed by chaitanya mahaprabhu gives you the essence of all vaishnava philosophy...
As you have asked which is correct....There is nothing uncorrect in philosophy of different vaishnava sampradaya........all sampradaya are connecting everyone with supreme lord....but the gaudiya vaishnavism sampradaya philosophy tells that it is inconvenciable non difference difference....it is rightly said that we are one with krishna in quality....but not in quantity.....as krishna is supreme brahman and we souls are identical brahman or soul.....so the only thing we should do is to consider ourself eternally servant of Lord Krishna....and should serve lord krishna in madhurya bhaav,vatsalya bhaav,sakha bhava or dasya bhava....it will eternally connect you with supreme lord....so it is upto you how you understand this philosophy of achintya abheda bheda....as it is from philosophy itself is clear....that you cannot understand krishna by yourself but by in submission way....you can understand him....if you will understand this philosophy of chaitanya mahaprabhu....you will understand every philosophy.....I have given...what I HAVE got to give....
