It can also be added that while dvaita and vishishtadvaita have adopted the
'bheda' model of sankhya, yoga, nyaya and vaisheshika, Advaita has based
its system on the Upanishads that uphold abheda. The grouping of the
created world into various tattvas has been well laid out by the Sankhya
and Advaita, based on the Bhagavadgita, acknowledges the same. The
practices for controlling the mind, etc. as systematized by the Yoga
darshana is also non-contradictory to Advaita.
