Passage

The Nyaya inherence is an external relation. It is rejected by Ramanuja because it involves infinite regress. Arthapak-siddhi is the relation between the body and the soul. It may also be the relation between a substance and its attributes, between parts and the whole, between one substance and another. It is an inner, inseparable, vital and organic relation. God is qualified by matter and souls. They form his body and are inseparable from and utterly dependent on him. In other words, matter and soul are regarded as two attributes of God. They are the controlled supported parts, accessory means. Whereas, God is their substance controller, support, whole and the end. They are eternal with him. It is important to note that God is free from all external differences; homogenous as well as heterogenous. There is nothing either similar or dissimilar which is external to or other than him. God՚s body is made of real and diverse elements like matter and souls. His relation with them is natural and eternal. God is both the material and the instrumental cause of the world. So, he possesses internal differences. He is immanent and transcendental ground of the world. He is the perfect personality. He is all good, knowledge, bliss, truth, etc.
