The 'anirvachaneeya khyAti vAdins’ are Advaitins. The difference between
the Ramanuja view and Advaita is: While in Ramanuja school the bhrama vastu
is real, in Advaita the object is anirvachaniya that is sadasad vilakshana.
This means it is neither asat like shasha vishaana not sat like Brahman. If
asat it would not have been perceived at all. A hare's horn will not become
an object of perception. Not is it sat like Brahman since upon knowledge of
adhishthana rope the snake gets negated, it undergoes baadha.
