 Dear Sri Sudhanshu Shekar,
     WHY don't you refer to mantra 6-11 of Svetashwara Upanishad to know the true svarUpa of Sakshi who is sarvavyApi and sarvaBUtAntarAtmA?He is EkO dEvaH as per the mantra. Since HE is sarvaBUtAntarAtma He is Your antarAtma.Why don't you take the inward journey and find the truth for yourself within yourself byyourself instead of going to other texts quoted in the discussions you are having with other scholars of this group which may be misleading?The truth is THE SAKSHI IS YOU YOURSELF. Do you know this?
Please ponder over.
With respectful pranams,Your wellwisher,Sreenivasa Murthy

//I have already given you my view for why there are two definitions of
sAkshi - one is from avacCheda vAda and another from AbhAsa vAda.//


Just for a quick refresh, what according to you is the position of
siddhAntI as per Advaita-Siddhi on following:-

1. Is rajatAkArA-avidyA-vritti required for illusory-rajata-jnAna?

2. Is sukhAkArA-avidyA-vritti required for sukha-jnAna?

3. Is ahamkArA-avidyA-vritti required for aham-jnAna?

4. Is avidyAkArA-avidyA-vritti required for avidyA-jnAna?

5. In pratibhAsa-kalpaka-samAna-kAlIna-kalpaka-vattvam, who is
avidyA-kalpaka and who is avidyA-pratibhAsa-kalpaka (i.e.
avidyA-jnAna-kalpaka)? [As per my understanding, avidyA-kalpaka =
avidyA-upahita-chaitanya, avidyA-pratibhAsa-kalpaka =

6. What is the primary definition of sAkshI accepted by Advaita-Siddhi?
