In the Vedanta Paribhasha at the end of the very text, the author cites as
the top Shri Vachaspati Mishra (the author of the Bhamati):


अधिकारं समाप्यैते प्रविशन्ति परं पदम् ॥" इति ।

However when we check is verse n the under the Brahma Sutra 3.3.32 we find
a different reading:

विद्याकर्मस्वनुष्ठानतोषितेश्वरचोदितम् ।
अधिकारं समाप्यैते प्रतिशन्ति परं पदम् ॥

The variation is in the first half of the verse.  Is there any other
reading of the Bhamati/Vedanta Paribhasha where the two are identical?

The Advaita Sharada is what is relied upon in the above citations. Popular
printed editions too have the above varied readings alone. Any inputs
