  Dear N. Srikanta,
  I have not had the opportunity to read sri bhashyam yet. So could you kindly 
  elaborate a little on the criticism on 'Anubhuti by Vimuktatman' 
  ie. both the advaitic standpoint and the vishista advaitic.

  Thank you very much for your Email explaining the difference
> between 'Anubhava" and "Anubhuthi". "Anubhava" is a Universal experience
