Grace in Vaishnavism
A talk by Dr Brainerd Prince of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

Does God give grace freely without any qualification? Or are good living and good works needed to receive God’s grace? The Vaishnava understanding of grace that focuses on the role of guru may give some clues. For Vaishnavas, while the grace of God is freely given through the guru, the disciple still has an important role to play in receiving the grace. This is an example of how Hindu thought can contribute to a debate that also exists in Christian theology and offer insights to find a way forward.
