Prakāśātman lived in A. D. 1200. He was also known as Prakāśānubhava, a disciple of Ananyānubhava. Prakāśātman has made his name immortal by writing a voluminous commentary called Pañcapādikā-vivaraṇa on the Pañcapādikā of Padmapāda, a direct disciple of Śaṅkara.[1] The work deals with only the first four sutras of the Brahmasutras, Śankara’s bhāsya on it and Padmapāda’s gloss on Śaṅkara’s bhāṣya. This famous work has given rise to a new school of Advaita, known as the ‘Vivaraṇaprasthāna’.

He has written a gloss on this, known as Pañcapādikā-vivarana, further amplifying Padmapāda’s views. This has developed into a separate and special school of Advaita Vedānta called the Vivaraṇaprasthāna. Padmapāda was a worshiper of the Narasiṅha aspect of Lord Visṇu and had once saved the life of his guru from the hands of the Kāpālikas.
