Prakāśātman (A. D. 1200) 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 Vivaranaprasthāna.

Padmapāda was a worshipper of the Narasimha aspect of Lord Visṇu and had once saved the life of his guru from the hands of the Kāpālikas.

Prakāśātman (A. D. 1200) Also known as Prakāśānubhava, a disciple of Ananyānubhava, Prakāśātman has made his name immortal by writing a voluminous commentary called Pañca- pādikā-vivarana on the Pañcapādikā of Padmapāda, a direct disciple of Śaṅkara (A. D. 788-820). The work deals with only the first four sutras of the Brahmasutras, Sankara’s bhāsya on it and Padmapāda’s gloss on Saṅkara’s bhāṣya. This famous work has given rise to a new school of Advaita, known as the ‘Vivaraṇaprasthāna’. See also ADVAITA VEDĀNTA DARŚANA.
