Here are some line from Gita for you. The concept of monism is blessed to the human being from the side of the kindest God. But, such blessing should not be misused by the human being. God created this world, controls it and finally dissolves it. The human being (both body and soul) is part and parcel of this world or creation and does not possess these three powers of creation, control and dissolution of the creation. Therefore, the imaginable human being (body or soul) is not the God in any way. The human being cannot be even a part of God. The reason is that God is unimaginable and the human being is imaginable. The practical proof for this is that the human being does not have even a trace of these three types of power. If the human being is a particle of God, it should create at least a particle of this world. Therefore, dualism is a perfect reality and should be never forgotten by the human being. The kindest God blessed the perfect monism to the human being. For God, the ultimate aim of the creation and control is only to enjoy this world as an entertainment. When the human being is blessed with the same entertainment, the perfect monism is granted by God to the human being. When you are enjoying the same fruit without any trace of strain of work in generating that fruit, there is perfect monism. When the producer and the director of a cinema is running a show and you are sitting by his side and enjoying the same show, is there any trace of difference between yourself and that owner? One might have procured the food materials and cooked those to prepare good dishes. If you eat the same dishes and enjoy equally with that person, is there any difference between yourself and that person? In fact, you are luckier than that person since you enjoy the same fruit without work and strain. Therefore, this is the monism granted by God to the soul due to His infinite kindness towards His children. This is the perfect monism propagated by Shankara. But, this perfect monism should not be misused because the work done by that person should be viewed as his unique power.
You can neither produce nor direct nor run the show. You can neither procure the food materials nor cook those. This difference establishes your inability and the ability of God. Therefore, you can have both monism and dualism in the same person at the same time. You can enjoy this world continuously as entertainment like God in perfect monism, being placed in the same bliss like a spectator of the cinema in both happy and unhappy scenes, and at the same time, avoid putting your hands on the shoulders of the owner recognising the difference of his ability and your inability as far as the powers are concerned. Thus, you can have monism and dualism in different places or in the same place in the same time and hence, there is no contradiction between Shankara, Ramanuja and Madhva in any angle in any way.
