Bhartṛprapañca’s main philosophical views that are different from Śankara’s
monism. For him, the essence of Brahman is in the same time dual and
non-dual. In one
aspect Brahman is non-differentiated while in other it is differentiated.
Both aspects are
real in opposition to Śaṅkara’s Advaita where differentiated aspect is
to Śaṅkara, Bhartṛprapañca explains that unity and plurality of *ātman *is
the same as with
“the cow” which possesses unity as substance (cowness as universality) on
one side and
individual properties on the other side that differentiate a particular cow6.
evolves into phenomenal world through eight gradual states that will be
described in this
paper. Liberation is achieved through combined path of knowledge and action
(*jñānakarmasamuccaya*) that encompasses combination of religious rites and
knowledge.7 As Śaṅkara holds that action cannot produce knowledge, Śaṅkara
such a view throughout his works and teaches that liberation is to be
knowledge alone, and not through religious rites.
