Advaita is an adjective meaning non-dual. Presumably it could modify a
number of different nouns other than Vedanta but here it is just used as a
shorthand. (like scotch is short for scotch whiskey.) However there are
some people who take a random hodge-podge of of concepts and call that
"advaita" so I prefer to spell it out--advaita vedanta. The extra typing
is worth it for the extra clarity.
