Can Bhagavat Gita be considered as prakarana grantha ?. I am afraid. It comes under prasthana traya.
BTW, to study the Advaita Siddhanta, per se, Bhagavat Gita "sans" Sankara Bhashya
is a flavourless recipe. And Sankara Bhashya of BG for a layman is a hard nut to crack.
As regards Dakshinamurty Stotra, one need not go thru the Manasollasa to understand
the basic tenets of Advaita. A simple explanation of the stanzas alongwith pratipadArtha
gives the basic idea of what the underlying principle is and the relation between Jagat-Ishwara-Jiva and the mahavakya "tat tvam asi".
Any comments, i stand corrected.
