I have heard the following said:
- ZaGkara hardly ever mentions the term 'mAyA'. He speaks more about avidya.
- 'MAyAvAdA' was initiated of sorts by Mandana Mishra, whose views were
blended with ZaGkara's possibly by Vacaspati Mishra.
- Vacaspati Mishra and Vidyaranya "made over" ZaGkara and his
philosophy. The latter (Vidyaranya) made ZaGkara out to be a Saivite and
attributed many Saivite ideas and texts to him.
To what extent have Vacaspati Mishra and Vidyaranya "made over" the
advaita-vAda of ZaGkara? Are any of these statements true? If not, could
the correct understanding be given?
