<quote> Istasiddhivivaranam *by Anubhutiswaroopacharya*.
Advaita literature can be broadly classifies into two categories;
those which strengthen the arguments in the Sankara bhAshya of
ThrayI and the second, the independent works explaining and defending
the tenets of Advaita.
The "Siddhi" works come under the second category-- Brahmasiddhi by Sri
Mandana Misra, Naishkarmyasiddhi by Sri Sureshvaracharya, Ishtasiddhi
Vimuktatman and Advaitasiddhi by Sri Madhusudana Sarasvati.
Brahma Siddhi devotes itself to the "what" of the desire to know
(lakshaNa and pramANa). Naishkarmya Siddhi concerns itself with the
Brahman knowledge (means of knowledge and action).Istasiddhi engages
itself with the "why" of Brahman knowledge (nature and cause of error
explains the appearance of the world). Advaita Siddhi concerns itself
word-by-word refutation of the Madhva School.
Sri Anubhuthi Swaroopacharya has written a commentary on Ishtasiddhi
"Ishtasiddhi VivaraNam". Anubhuthi Swaroopacharya has dealt in detail
the description and nature of mAyA., the distinction between jIva and
ISvara, the refutation of Nyaya and Vaiseshika and refutation of the
of difference cum non difference. His views on jIvanmukti and
are original. He maintains that mAyA exists even in liberation.
