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.
