namastE. praNaams My Dear  श्रीमल्ललितालालितः 
Thank you for your patience in responding in spite of the irritation caused thereby. 
Now, therefore, allow me repeat in my own words, from what i have understood from your writings in this forum : [BTW i haven't yet studied advaitasiddhi / vEdAntaparibhASha - i may need much more time for that] 
We are talking about vyavahAra - vRtti-janya-jnAna - in particular. Let us consider any object in the vyavahArika that is the usual perceptible world, say a simple ghaTa. A knowledge of the ghaTa arises from the ghaTAkAra-vRtti as usually understood. What will be that knowledge of the same ghaTa arising from an akhanDAkAra-vRtti associated with it? Will it be the same knowledge, or different? I guess that it will be different because of the fact that the ghaTAkAra-vRtti is different from the akhanDAkAra-vRtti associated with it. If different, how different will be those two from one another? "ghaTAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna of the ghaTa"  -and-  "akhanDAkAra-vRtti-janya-jnAna of the ghaTa".   Keshava PRASAD HalemanemOkShakaamaarthadharmahjanmanaa jaayatE jantuḥ |  samskaaraat hi bhavEt dvijaḥ ||  vEda-paaThaat bhavEt vipra |  brahma jnaanaat hi braahmaNah ||

Is it possible for one to have an  akhaNDAkAra-vRtti [niShprakAra-vRtti] associated with an object in the physical world, say a ghaTa or a paTa like object? OR is it that  an  akhaNDAkAra-vRtti [niShprakAra-vRtti] is by definition always associated with only brahma-vastu? 

​You know, anyone will hate to say same thing again and again. I'm telling this about second question. 

If you understand that I was refuting it's relation with  brahma-vastu only, then it makes sense to deduce that I accept that this vRtti is possible for other objects. Otherwise, why should I insist to cover सोयम् and प्रकृष्टप्रकाशश्चन्द्रः etc.?
