SrI VidyAraNya svAmI cites Muktika Upanishad 2.64 (MuktikopaniSat) in
PanchdaSI 4.68

दर्शनादर्शने हित्वा स्वयं केवलरूपतः .
य आस्ते कपिशार्दूल ब्रह्म स ब्रह्मवित्स्वयम् .. (2.64 Muktika Upanishad,
4.68 PanchdaSI - dvaita viveka)

O Brahman! The one leaving both darSana (GYAna, knowledge) and adarSana
(aGYAna, ignorance), abides only in Self (svarUpa), he himself is Brahman
only, not just knower of Brahman.

(in other words, Knower of Brahman is Brahman itself, Brahmavid Brahmaiva
Bhavati, Mund. Up. 3.2.9). Sri Ramana Maharshi also says the same thing.
According to Swami Shankarananda of Chinmaya Mission, who has Translated
PancadaSI in Hindi and have commented on it says that this verse occurs in
Yog VAsisTa too.

vidyAraNya svAmI also cites that there are other yOga upanishads while
explaining the importance of yOga in advaita. This indicates that he was
aware of more upanishads of yOga nature, hinting about his awareness of
muktikA upanishad.
