Stop Name dropping. Bhaskara is not authority on Bhartruprapancha. He is
absolutely wrong. He does not know his own Guru SSS views properly. This
was showed recently. SSS said one thing and Bhaskara is saying another
thing. He has not understood SSS. How can he understand Bhartrprapancha?
Bhartrprapancha is saying Brahman is two types and NOT saying only Abheda
is reality. He is not accepting Bheda of Brahman and Jeeva is Mithyaa like
Adi Sankara. But Sub commentators have all accepted Brahman and Jeeva Bheda
is Mithyaa.
