bhAgavatam contains multiple descriptions of evolution of
tattva-s. Recently was reading the description in Book2,
Chapter 5 (2.5.24). While describing the vaikArika, taijasa,
and tAmasa ahamkAra, jnAna, kriyA, and dravya shakti-s are
listed. While, jnAna, and kriyA shakti-s are mentioned in
many places in literature, dravya shakti is hardly mentioned.
Would appreciate if some list members can shed some more light
on dravya shakti.
(Also mentioned in dAsabodha 17.9.6, where rAmadAsa swami
lists kriyA, dravya, icchA and jnAna as the fourfold shakti.)
Is it likely that what are termed as AvaraNa shakti and
vikSepa shakti in vedAnta, are jointly referred to as dravya
