Thank you. Both dual and non-dual positions are stated by various dArsanika-s. 
What I meant to say is that the uniqueness of Sankara darsana lies not in 
non-dualism itself but in the vivarta vAda. So the moment we bring in vivarta 
concept most of the criticism on Sankara darsana does not hold ground.

  This list is primarily meant to focus on Sankaran advaita vedAnta.  There is a 
kind of advaita within the broad rubric of mahAyAna buddhism, as also many 
contemporary variants of monistic/non-dualistic thinking. And there are many 
variants of vedAnta, which are not non-dualistic in nature.   These are not the 
primary focus of this list, but thoughtful and insightful comparative 
discussions are welcome. So long as a discussion doesn't degenerate to 
meaningless levels and doesn't get derailed by someone wanting to have the last 
say ...   Regards, Vidyasankar
