Namaste Chandramouliji,

​Thanks for the references. Could you also meanwhile link me to any Advaita
Siddhi online that you're referring to (say, for the ten definitions,
etc)​? I do not have a hard or soft copy.

 Without accepting the [presence of] unknown/unseen entity, accepting only
that which the self is seeing at whichever time, that is DSV
MS has mentioned the purport of DSV as: (Sanskrit) when one seen anything,
at the same time, [he] creates that".​

​As you can see from the above, the book's Hindi translation is generic
which can go with DES, but Sanskrit says DSKS! Unless thats the only
flavour that MS talks of, I would say that he accepts both possibilities.

I would very much like a translation of the same (commentary on verse 67)

​My knowledge of two DSV flavours is as taught by my Acharyaji here during
Mandukya bhAShya. I would love to have a look at other definitions of DSV
from Advaitasiddhi some time.

Kind rgds,
